Birdwatching at Revtangen and Orrevatnet
You cannot help but to envy birdwatchers that live in Jæren, for example close to Revtangen and Orrevatnet Nature Reserve. Here, you can go birdwatching all year round. And the variety of species is exciting no matter the season. Even in the middle of the winter, you will find birds in vast numbers in this area—either swans, geese, ducks, grebes, loons, or birds of prey. Rare gulls may also be seen here, particularly the Glaucous Gull. Near Orreosen, you will find a bird tower, giving you a good view over the water Orrevatnet. The water Ergavatnet, just south of the bird tower, is also worth visiting if you are in the area.
Long Migrating Season
During the migration periods, the variety of species increases even more. Common birds and rarities swarm. The same is the case with the breeding season. Actually, you cannot be categorical when defining these seasons. In the middle of the breeding season, some species end their spring migration, while others start their autumn migration—creating a wonderfully mixed birdlife.
