Lista Birdwatching

Between high sky and wide horizon. An oasis of green and blue. Here memories grow for life.

Lista is one of Norway’s most important resting places for migratory birds

The number of bird species observed at Lista during a year is at the very top in Northern Europe.

The spring migration begins early in the year and lasts until mid-June. During this period the migratory birds find their nesting places here in the north. The autumn migration begins already at the beginning of July for some species and lasts until the end of November. Regardless of the season, there is busting life, it’s basically just a matter of stopping and looking.
