The Slivsø lake was drained in 1957-1959 to be used for agriculture. Fortunately, in 2004 most of it was restored. There are several small islands where birds can nest safely. Among the birds you can encounter are White-tailed Eagle, Common Kingfisher, Garganey, Northern Shoveler, Common Shelduck, Common Teal, Tufted Duck, Common Pochard, Common Goldeneye, Common Greenshank, Common Sandpiper and Marsh Harrier.
