Urban Birding - Experience the city in a different way (Copenhagen)

Urban birding - birdlife at the old moat and rampart

Urban Birding! Do you want to experience the city in a different way? Why not join a birdwatching tour with a local birdwatcher? Yes, it is possible to do birdwatching in Copenhagen! Are you on a city break or on business travel - why not take a break and relax with urban birding? On this tour we look for birds at Christianshavns Vold - the old ramparts, and Stadsgraven - the old moat. We expect to see Mute Swans - the Danish national bird. You probably know it from the famous H.C. Andersen's fairy tale "The Ugly Duckling". From the trail we expect to see various waterbirds such as herons, ducks, geese and cormorants. In the bush and trees we look for other birds. If we are very lucky, we might see a peregrine falcon! The tour takes place at a calm pace and we stop at several places to watch and enjoy the birds.

Your bird 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. That also goes for all the sites where we arrange birdwatching tours. In addition to being a bird tour guide, I also participate in monitoring and ringing of birds. Furthermore, I am a blogger writing about birds and travels. Uffe Damm Andersen
