Sundre bird observatory

Sundre bird observatory

A Bird trip to southern Gotland. Stay in medieval Visby.

Storsudret and the Sundre bird observatory
Southern Gotland offers several interesting sites for breeding and resting birds. We will visit some of the best birding areas, depending on the season, including a visit at the Sundre Bird Observatory on the southernmost part of the island. On this tour, we have good opportunities to see species as Barnacle Goose, Northern Pintail, Garganey, Pied Avocet, Ruff, Caspian Tern, Collared Flycatcher, Bearded Reedling and Black Woodpecker. We will visit Sundre bird observatory and receive insight in the daily work. Here are normally passerines caught and ringed, and the key species are Lesser Whitethroat, Common Whitethroat and Willow Warbler – sometimes even Barred Warbler which has had a decline in breeding status in the area lately.
We will make an early-morning visit to the Sundre Bird Observatory and get insight in their daily work. This is one of the prime sites for ringing long-migrants in Sweden, including Lesser Whitethroat, Common Whitethroat and Willow Warbler – sometimes even Barred Warbler which has had a decline in breeding status in the area lately. We will see how the ringing procedure is done. Note that we during our stay must let the staff at the observatory work undisturbed if it is a morning with high activity in the nets.
