Birdwatching at Beitstadfjorden
At the heart of Trondheimsfjorden, in the part that is called Beitstadfjorden, located near Steinkjær, there are several good bird locations. Hammeren, Lundleiret, Frøsetvågen, and Kroksvågen are all easily accessible creeks far into the fjord with nice mud areas, perfect staging areas for migrating sea and water birds. At certain times, you will find thousands of Pink-footed Geese here, along with great numbers of ducks and waders.
In the bay outside of Lundleiret, you will find the grassy islets Gluggen and Loaskjæret. On Gluggen, one of Mid-Norway’s largest Black-headed Gull colonies breeds together with Mew Gulls.
