Eastern Norway Viken NESODDEN

Birdwatching Nesoddtangen

  •  /  km From You

Nesodden is a tapering headland protruding northwards into the inner Oslofjord basin and provides a flyway for migrating land-birds in spring. The northern tip of the peninsula, Nesoddtangen, is one of the best sites in Norway for diurnal migration of land birds in spring. The migration is at its most intense, as seen from the ground, in early mornings when there is a slight breeze from a northerly direction combined with overcast conditions and rising temperatures. Thousands of pipits, thrushes, finches and other common Scandinavian migrants may pass Nesoddtangen on the best days, crossing the Oslofjord in the direction of Bygdøy. On such days, birds often include a few surprises, such as short-distance migrants like woodpeckers, or generally scarce species such as Wood Lark, Grey Wagtail, Mistle Thrush and Hawfinch.
