Sea watching hide at Lista

Sea watching hide - at the entry of important migration flyway

One of the world's smallest populations of geese (less than 10,000 individuals) migrate past Lista every year.

The new sea watching hide at Lista lies at the entry to Norway's most important migration flyway for seabirds. The sea watching hide is built to make the fascinating natural phenomenon of bird migration accessible to everyone.

By M. Wold

Every spring and autumn thousands of birds pass by on their way to and from breeding areas. Some breed in Norway, others are on their way to more distant destinations such as Svalbard and Siberia. Migrating birds use the coast line as a guide to find their way, and pass close by the sea watching hide when they come around the Lista peninsula. Now in the beginning of March, the very first migrants pass by; gannets, gulls and shelducks.

Even though we haven't had an official opening yet, the news have spread and we've had visits from the media. Here you can read a story covered by NRK Sørlandet (in Norwegian).

The sea watching hide is placed just outside the Lighthouse wall and is open to everybody. Architects behind the construction are Gaia Lista, and the hide has been built with funds from Sørnorsk Kystnatur and Sparebankstiftelsen DNB Nor, and is based on a large number of hours of volunteer work with migration counts by Lista Bird Observatory over the last 23 years.
