Description

The Laajalahti Nature Reserve is one of the best bird waters in the Helsinki metropolitan area. It is an excellent bird watching place both during migration times, but also in other periods outside winter the birding is good. The Maari Bird Tower is located at the end of Otaniemi, along the path from Konemiehentie. The shallow waters, reeds and wet meadows are a great place for waders, seabirds, geese, ducks, birds of prey and herons.
