Description

Tjusträsk is a lake with surrounding fields and part of the Siuntionjoki Natura area. It is an important resting place for migratory birds. Might be worth a visit if you are in the vicinity. From easy birds like songbirds and waterbirds to very difficult ones like Hazel Grouse, Great Bittern and Eurasian Nightjar. Good overview from a birdwatching tower.
