Sweden, from migration Hot-spots in the south to exotic forests and mountains
in the north. Clickable Maps lead to 19 birding hotspots.
Bird Observatory, which is owned and administrated by
Ornithological Society. The Observatory is since 1988 also a meteorological
station under the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI).
at Ottenby Bird Observatory - Ottenby
is primarily a place for
migrating birds. Every spring and autumn a great number of migrators leave
or reach Sweden here. In Sweden about 475 bird species have been observed,
and 345 of them have been seen at Ottenby.
to Utlängan - Utlängan is a good
place for migrating birds.
A large number of migrants, especially seabirds, pass the island north-

the southeastern tip of Sweden.

Birds at Lake Angarm
is located in the northeastern part of the province Scania in the very
south of Sweden. Concerning the number of breeding bird species, this area
is one of the richest in Sweden, due to a wide diversity of habitats.
Tåkern - Lake Tåkern is an extremely
eutrophic lake situated
in southern Sweden in the county of Östergötland. In the meadow
areas between the reeds and the shore many diffrent speices of waders can
be found breeding and resting. mayby the best place to watch these are
at the bird tower in the eastern part of the lake, at Hov.
Lapponian Area - includes:
Nilsson's Yard - a different kind of "trip" report. Oh, to have
Birding Links - many in Swedish.
The bog surrounding the central
lake in Muddus, Muddusjaure, supports a great variety of birds. Accordingly,
a large area has been set aside as a bird sanctuary, with entry prohibited.
In the Sjaunja mires more than 150 bird species have been observed, at
least 100 of which have been confirmed as breeding.

Birding Trip Reports - David provides
five different trip reports
for Sweden, ranging from day trips to a one-week family trip.
Sites covered include:
Report: Scandinavia (Sweden, Finland, and Norway),
1 - 30, 1987 - by Gerard Joannes. Scandinavia has changed a lot recently.
Finding food at a reasonable price was very difficult during my first trip
from 1 to 30 July 1987. I did a lot of sight-seeing then only watching
birds when I saw them. During my second
trip in 1996 which was entirely devoted to bird-watching, we found
food very easily at supermarket prices..
Report: South Sweden & Denmark, January 14-16, 2000 by
Hofland. Having heard about the many Pygmy Owls, sighted in Denmark in
autumn 1999, we decided to try our luck on this most-wanted species of
ours. This report is about our hunt for winter owls.
Report: Northern Scandinavia (Finland, Sweden, and Norway)
13-28, 1998 by Gruff Dodd. In June 1998 I was finally able to satisfy a
long outstanding ambition to travel to this wonderful part of Europe in
search of some of its most magical birds. I had wanted to visit this region
for many years.
Report: Jylland (Denmark), Northern Germany, and Koitjärve
April 2-13, 1998. I write very briefly, mainly for the benefit of the North-American
readers, from whom I have always got most plentiful comments and most beautiful
compliments concerning my trip reports. For the European readers, I must
tell that there is nothing outstanding here -- just common species.
Report: Tynnigö (Stockholm Archipelago, Sweden), Summer 1998
Michael Watkins. I have just returned from a short trip to Sweden. The
restricted time meant a restricted area, so this may have some value as
an observation in a very small area in a short time.
Report: Northern Scandinavia June 1999 - by Teus Luijendijk.
June 1999, Pieter van der Luit and I set out for a trip through Northern
Sweden, Finland and Norway. In this report I have summarised our findings,
mostly regarding to the birds (and mammals) we observed. Our goal was to
find as many of the 'Northern speciality birds' as possible. Any birder
will know what I mean with this: the (North-)Scandinavian forests and tundra's
host a number of bird species that are difficult, or even impossible, to
Report: Northern Scandinavia, May-June 2000, by
Woolley and Julia Casson.
