Bulbjerg is a limestone cliff in the north of Jutland. Since 1987, there have been observations and breeding attempts of Northern Fulmar, of which 2 breeding pairs had the first successfull breeding in 2000.

From the cliff you can observe duckspecies as Common Eider. From the cliff can be seen flocks of Common Scoter which feed on mussels and snails, which they dive down and pick up from the seabed. In summer mostly males and young birds can be seen at Bjulberg where they moult their feathers.

Other birds that can be seen from the cliff are Kittiwake, Red-throated Diver, Black-throated Diver (Arctic Loon), Northern Gannet, Razorbill, Common Guillemot, Manx Shearwater, Sooty Shearwater, European Storm Petrel, Leach's Storm Petrel and the different kinds of skua, such as Arctic Skua (Parasitic Jaeger). Also Sand Martin can be seen here.

During spring migration, there are good opportunities to see birds of prey, especially on days with easterly winds. Birds you can expect are Common Buzzard, Rough-legged Buzzard, Red Kite, Osprey, Merlin and in the best case, White-tailed Eagle and Golden Eagle.

On the remains of Skarreklit - a 16 meter high limestone cliff which was ruined during a storm in 1978 - can be seen Great Cormorant, the species which gave this rock its name.
