Fornæs is a migration hub covering both east, north and west. And there is a good chance of seeing Black Guillemot since they breed close by. As well as Razorbill in huge numbers migrating (100.000 estimated on one good day) and a few staying through the winter. In spring and fall huge flocks of birds of prey arrive on route to Sweden or exploring the north. Rare birds are seen regularly, though not every day.
Waders live at the coast, as well as terns, ducks and geese. Various small birds such as Northern Wheatear come here outside their breeding season and usually stay a while before migrating further. Northern Gannet hunt outside the coast, though usually far out. Velvet Scoter and Common Scoter live here permanently.
