Falsterbo - The autumn bird migration over southern Sweden

Falsterbo in Sweden is one of the best places for autumn bird migration. Due to its geographic location as Sweden's most south-western point, the Falsterbo Peninsula acts as a bottleneck for birds heading south in autumn. Many birds prefer to fly over land and along the Swedish coasts as long as possible to avoid flying over the open sea. This creates a large concentration of birds at Falsterbo, where many rest for a shorter or longer time before continuing their journey across the sea towards Denmark. The area is also known for its diverse habitats, including beach, sand dunes and wetlands, which attract a wide variety of bird species. This makes Falsterbo one of the best places in Europe where ornithologists and bird watchers can experience the fascinating features of birds. Tour description On this bird tour, we start the day by going out to Falsterbo Lighthouse and Nabben to experience the morning bird migration, where it is especially small birds and sparrow hawks that dominate. There will also be an opportunity to look at resting and preening ducks and waders. During the morning - and depending on the weather and the intensity of the bird migration - we drive to the Ljungen (Skanörs Ljung) to experience the bird of prey migration. Depending on the season, we expect to see species such as hornbills, ospreys, goshawks, sparrow hawks, hawks and falcons and, not least, buzzards. There is also the opportunity to see Sea Eagles and if we are really lucky we might see one of the rarer species that are seen annually at Falsterbo. If the intensity of the afternoon's birds of prey migration is very low - e.g. due to weather conditions - we will visit some other nearby locations and look for resting birds (e.g. waders, ducks, geese, birds of prey and small birds). The trip ends during the afternoon. The birds' autumn migration extends from the very beginning of July into November - some species migrate south earlier than other species. This means that the bird species we expect to see on the trip change during the autumn.

Your birdtour guide

Can you imagine a world without birds? I can't! I have been an avid and passionate birdwatcher from an early age, and therefore have many years of experience in birdwatching. I have extensive local knowledge of the birdlife of Møn and Nyord and all the sites where we arrange birdwatching tours. In addition to being a birdtour guide, I also participate in monitoring and ringing of birds. Furthermore, I am a blogger writing about birds and travels. Uffe Damm Andersen
