Põõsaspea promontory is located opposite from the island of Osmussaar and is the north-western-most promontory of the Estonian mainland. Its rocky ridge reaches far into the sea towards Osmussaar.
This is the view from Dirhami, showing the sheltered harbour, with the headland of Spithami (Poosaspea Neem) in the distance.
The location of Spithami at the north-west corner of mainland Estonia, makes it one of the best sites for passage birds in the country. It is particularly noted for its sea watching, including movements of gooses, grebes, swans and divers (up to 1,000 divers per day in late April). In early May, there can be tens of thousands of sea duck gathering offshore. Both King Eider and Steller’s Eider occur regularly.
