Birdwatching at Ilene and Presterødkilen
In Tønsberg, the birds have found themselves a little oasis in the middle of the industrial and commercial areas by the bays of Ilene and Presterødkilen. Consequently, this is also an oasis for birderwatchers and walkers. Interesting things can be seen all year round, but these places are most exciting during migration periods and in the summer. In the winter, however, you can find Bearded Reedling, Common Kingfisher, and Water Rail. So this place is definitely worth several trips during the year.
