Eastern Norway Viken FREDRIKSTAD

Birdwatching Øra (tower hide)

  •  /  km From You

Øra is a large delta wetland at the mouth of the longest river in Norway, Glomma, just outside the town Fredrikstad. It is a strategically positioned staging area for migrant waterbirds, and also a very important breeding area for several species, including Cormorant of the Continental subspecies sinensis, which invaded the area and started to breed here in 1997. The population here is now in excess of 1000 pairs. Shoveler, Marsh Harrier, Little Ringed Plover, Woodlark, Reed Warbler and Bearded Tit are also among the regular breeders in and around the delta. The latter is also a relatively new nesting species, regularly seen along the channel by the tower hide. Øra is frequented by several nearby breeding pairs of Osprey through the summer.
