Vestamager - Birdlife near the city

Vestamager (or Kalvebod Fælled) is one of the most important wetlands in Eastern Denmark. The area is home to large populations of breeding and resting ducks and waders. It is also an important resting area for birds of prey. Vestamager was formed during World War II, where the shallow water west of Amager's then coast was dammed. The area was for many years a military area, but is today a very important nature and recreational area. Today, Vestamager is a mosaic of grazed meadows, self-sown birch forest, willow thickets, lakes and wetlands. Especially the Klydesøen reserve, Hejresøen, the areas around Storehøj and Villahøj, Birkedammen and Pinseskoven are among the particularly interesting places when it comes to birdwatching. In addition, Kalveboderne and Kalvebodløbet between Amager and Sjælland are a good place for ducks in the winter. We can arrange various tours of shorter or longer duration or distance, where we either walk or cycle around to one or more of the birding sites.

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
