Friday, June 14, for employees of the Prioksko-Terrasny Reserve was clouded by a serious traffic accident in which a young elk died. It was a young male with still soft, neosteen horns. He was hit by a car.
At the mating male snipe rises to a height of 100 meters, and then swoops down rapidly. At the same time he makes a sound like the bleating of a sheep. The source of this sound is the tail feathers, vibrating under the pressure of the air.
