Decent spot for autumn migration. There is a good view of the fjord and you can observe common seabirds as well as the more rare Loons and Auks.

Kragesand is a good place to observe bird migration in late summer and autumn, when Scandinavian birds migrate south. Waders can migrate in August, while in the autumn eider ducks, geese, and terns are seen. Kragesand is, apart from Lakolk on Rømø, the best place in Southern Jutland to find Red-throated Diver and Black-throated Diver (Arctic Loon). Arctic Skua (Parasitic Jaeger) and Razorbill are often seen. In the winter, thousands of Common Eider rest in the sea off Kragesand along with Common Goldeneye, Long-tailed Duck and Common Scoter.
