Birdwatching at Børgin
Børgin is a little fjord arm located partly in Inderøy and partly in Steinkjær municipality, and definitely a place to visit all year round. During migration periods, vast numbers of geese and ducks use this area as a staging place. And in the winter, you will find many sea birds here. In the early part of the summer, you will find breeding species here as well. If you broaden out to visit other parts of Inderøy, this segment will also broaden out.
This approximately ten kilometre long fjord arm is both nutritious and shallow. In addition, it is surrounded by agricultural land. Hence, it has a magnetic effect on many migrating species, including the Pink-footed Goose. Of these, you will find thousands in the spring and many, but not as many, in the autumn. You should make it your mission to find a Greater White-fronted Goose or Taiga Bean Goose among these.
Within Børgin lies Rolsøya Naturreservat (Rolsøya Nature Reserve), and just outside of Børgin, you will find Vikaleiret Fuglefredningsområde (Vikaleiret Bird Reserve).
