Birdwatching in Fornebu
Since Oslo’s main airport was moved from Fornebu, many new houses and commercial buildings have been, and are still beeing, constructed. Nevertheless, birdlife in this area is rich, and the ornithological activity is high. In Fornebu, active ringing is being performed. Additionally, rarities show up quite often. Halvøya, located in the inner part of the Oslo Fjord, has many narrow bays and shallow water areas. Several places are encircled with rush and common reed. Bearded Reedling and Water Rail enjoy this area and can often be seen in the winter as well. Spring is the best migration period. However, rarities can also show up in the autumn.
