Brændegård is a large lake with a small island, which was formerly a Great Cormorant colony. The lake is surrounded by forest. Many different birds of prey are seen here and especially the White-tailed Eagle pair is impressive. But also the amount of birds. Up to 13 White-tailed Eagle have been seen at one time. Common Crane is also often seen in addition to a lot of different ducks. Grey Heron, Common Tern and Great Egret are also regulars.



Drive along the shore of the Brændegård Lake and stop wherever you have the best views. A large part of the shore is wooded, but on the east side of the lake near a farm you have an unobstructed view (see the viewpoint icon). You need at least binoculars to see any birds, but a spotting scope is also a good idea for the best views.
