Description

Dømmesmoen is a beautiful area outside Grimstad, offering a large, well-maintained park and excellent walking terrain in the woodland behind the Norwegian Museum of Horticulture. A good area to see warblers and songbirds including Wood Warbler in the summer and a good chance on Hawfinch. Also many species of woodpeckers including Wryneck. Occasionally interesting ducks on the pond along with also Mallard and Eurasian Moorhen.
