Copenhagen and North Sjælland - late April

Hello everybody,

the wife and I are planning a short trip to Copenhagen area and North Sjælland at the end of April. We'll hire a car and are quite free to move around.

Main goal for trip is for some reason (unknown to me) not birdwatching () but I'd like to squeeze in a few birding hotspots as well

I'd be glad to get some advice re. best places to stop - I'm particularly interested in shorebirds/seabirds ...

Thank you very much in advance,

Max

A few links for you:
http://www.birdforum.net/opus/Copenhagen_area

http://www.dof.dk/sider/index.php?It...tent&task=view
(on this one, especially notice #9)

In greater Sjaelland, there are many places for Shorebirds: http://www.dof.dk/sider/index.php?op...768&Itemid=822
Notice the site Gilleleje for migration, in the right wind seabirds are possible there.

On both my last two visits to Copenhagen, I visited Kalvebod Fælled, which is a large reserve on Amager. Both visits were pretty interesting - one was in December, when the highlight was watching a Hen harrier hunting low over the grassland; and the other was in June, when the highlight was the number of warblers around.

But I would warn you that it is BIG! My first visit, I parked in the car park near the visitor centre, and for my second visit, I was staying in a hotel nearby. So both times, I was exploring the reserve on foot..... and I think I managed to cover less than 10% of the reserve!

Thank you, looks like a terrific place to visit! A marshland almost in the middle of the city ... wow!

Nice thread would like to bump it
I am here in Copenhagen right now and will stay until December 31
Are there any specific suggestions of birds to watch in this season, preferably in Copenhagen or very close to?
Thanks
