Almost 20 years it took to complete Northern Europe's largest nature restoration project, and the result is unparalleled. Skjern Enge has once again become one of Northern Europe's most important rest areas for wading and water birds. Among the birds you can see here are White-tailed Eagle, Spoonbill, Grey Heron, Great Egret, Northern Lapwing, Mute Swan, Whooper Swan, Common Goldeneye, Eurasian Wigeon, Mallard, Eurasian Kestrel, Common Buzzard, Northern Goshawk, Greylag Goose, Northern Shoveler, Tufted Duck, Common Pochard and Common Teal.
