VÕILAID (FOAL ISLAND)
On the island we keep our young horses herd during summer. There are also cows and from time to time sheep. Grazing horses and cows creates ideal nesting conditions for the bird called dunlin (Calidris alpina schinzii). It´s a very rare bird in Europe. In Estonia there are 140 couples.
