This cache has been archived.

juppo: Unfortunately, the container has grown wings and flown away to better hunting grounds. Might get unarchived later, if I manage to replace it with something similar.

Thanks everybody for visiting and leaving nice and funny comments, and FPs! I was a bit surprised X-es caused so many problems.

Keep on caching!

Geocache Description:

[LAT] Lai atrastu sho sleepni, jums jaaizstaigaa Kaltenes putnu taka un jaizpilda daži vienkarši uzdevumi. Sleepnja nosaukums no šiis multenes:

[ENG] To find this cache you will have to explore Kaltene birds' trail and complete several easy tasks. Name of the cache inspired by:

[LAT] Kaltenes putnu taka ir aptuveni 1 km gara, nemarkjeta un vijas galvenokaart caur juuras piekrastes niedreem (slapjaa laikaa ieshana var nebuut paaraak patiikama). Ja uzvediisities pietiekami klusi un buusit pietiekami pacietiigi, iespeejams, vareesiet noveerot gan Latvijaa miitoshus, gan migreejoshus putnus. Vairaakaas vietaas gar taku ir izvietoti informatiivi materiaali un atteeli putnu atpaziishanai. Diemzheel nesen dazhi no tiem ir izpostiiti, tostarp takas karte auto staavvietaa. Labaakais laiks putnu veerošanai ir pavasaris un vasaras otraa puse, tachu to var dariit arii ziemaa, ja vien juura nav aizsalusi. Ieteicams brunjoties ar binokli un/vai spoguljkameru ar milzu objektivu.

[ENG] Kaltene birds' trail is an approximately 1 km long unmarked trail along the seashore and through the reeds (might be a bit unpleasant in wet weather). Along the way you can stop and look at the birdlife at the viewing shelters. Approach quietly for best results. Several information boards have been set up along the way to help you recognise the birds. Unfortunately, they are in Latvian only, and recently a couple of them have been vandalized, including the trail map at the parking place. Best time for bird-watching is spring and end of summer. Bring along binoculars and/or an SLR camera with a superzoom lens.

[LAT] Sleepnis ir netradicionaals un integreets apkaarteejaa videe. Iekšaa viesu graamata, ziimulis, asinaamais, pildspalva, šaadas taadas mainaamlietas. Luudzu, nemeegjiniet ievietot sleepnii lielaakus priekšmetus, nekaa iespeejams, un novietojiet to atpakalj tieši turpat un taapat, kaa atradaat. Paaraak neaizraujoties ar putnu veerošanu, lai atrastu sleepni un atgrieztos staavvietaa, vajadzeetu pietikt ar aptuveni 1 stundu.

[ENG] The "cache-box" is unconventional and integrated into the surroundings. Contains logbook, pencil, sharpener, pen and a handful of trading items. Do not try to place larger objects into the cache than possible and replace it at the same place and in the same way as you found it. Around 1 hour should be sufficient for finding the cache and returning to the parking-place if you do not get too carried away by bird-watching.
