Discover Birds

Along the west coast, you can see countless sea birds, such as the Atlantic puffin (see picture), Atlantic kittiwake (with their black edged wings) and Northern fulmars (a species of sea gull). In the sheltered bays and along the lakes, some bird species such as geese, swans, ducks and woodcocks make a stopover for the winter and subsequently return to Northern Europe, Russia, Greenland or Canada.
