DESTINATIONS

SKÅNE


SV Brantevik MagnusUllman_600

The southernmost province just 20 minutes away from Copenhagen Airport. Excellent year-round birding and Scandinavia’s main migration hotspot with Falsterbo and its massive visible migration as one of the jewels in the crown. Another one is the eastern part, Österlen. The habitats are varied, from sandy beaches, rocky cliffs, to farmland, different types of forest and major wetlands and lakes.

ÖLAND


OlandErikHirschfeld_600

A large Baltic Island. Holds Sweden’s oldest bird observatory, Ottenby, situated at the southern tip, and impressive numbers of migrant birds. The breeding fauna is distinctly easterly, with species such as Red-breasted and Collared Flycatcher, Greenish Warbler and Common Rosefinch. Alvaret is a unique steppe habitat and rich in orchids and other flora.

GOTLAND

Another gem in the Baltic Sea. Further away from the mainland than Öland and only reachable by air (easiest through Stockholm or Malmö) or ship (via Stockholm/Nynäshamn or Oskarshamn). The easterly influence on the bird fauna is obvious here, sharing many breeding species with Öland, in addition to harbouring Sweden’s only giant seabird colonies (auks) on Karlsöarna and fantastic nature and scenery. Main season May-September.

LAKE HORNBORGA

Accessible from Gothenburg. This is the famous hotspot for seeing dancing Cranes in March-April and the fantastic lake is well worth a birding visit until June. The flora is varied and nearby some of Sweden’s largest congregations of Whooper Swans are found in spring. There are several lekking places for Black Grouse. Hazel Hen, Tengmalm’s Owl, Pygmy Owl and Capercaillie can also be found.
