Some of Latvia's roads are the worst I have encoutered in Europe, reel bone braking car wrecking roads, but a lovelly country with friendly, helpful people. The fishponds at Nagli offers some of the best birding in Europe with many outstanding birds.
Saw my first Racoon Dog sadly just as It ran into a car, it was still alive so I took it to a local animal shelter, but I fear the worst. They are common in the area.
Not my photo wish it was.
