The bird tower is easily accessable. In autumn, there is a good chance to find a Great Snipe among other great species of wader and waterfowl. Some recent rarities (in Finnish context) include Greater Short-toed Lark, Marsh Sandpiper and Red Kite.

You can make a circular walk through reedbeds. The route is marked and is called "Uikkupolku (Grebe path)". In the reeded area, you can find Bearded Tit among other typical reed species.



Raisio Bay is located 3 km southwest of the town of Raisio. Parking spot is close by. Click on the P in the map for directions.
