Raisio Bay

Raisio  >  Finland

Great bay in SW-Finland. Excellent place to see migrating waterfowl and waders.

Description

The bird tower is easily accessable. In autumn, there is a good chance to find a Great Snipe among other great species of wader and waterfowl. Some recent rarities (in Finnish context) include Greater Short-toed Lark, Marsh Sandpiper and Red Kite.

You can make a circular walk through reedbeds. The route is marked and is called "Uikkupolku (Grebe path)". In the reeded area, you can find Bearded Tit among other typical reed species.
