Birds on Gotska Sandön

Welcome have a loook at these pages, focused on a list of birds seen on the island Gotska Sandön.


End of May is an interesting period for the birdwatcher on Gotska Sandön. So is the case also this year 2013. Two new bird species for the island have been discovered. The proper documentation for these records has not yet been revealed but I choose to add them to the species list, now updated with Pallid Harrier and Savi's Warbler. Who knows what will show up next? 30 May 2013 21:30

Three accepted firsts for Gotska Sandön from summer 2012 have been included in the species list, now reaching 266 species. It concerns a Mediterranean Gull, a Firecrest and last but not least a Trumpeter Finch. Now you can also have a look at Zacke Svenssons photos of the Rose-Coloured Starling from early summer 2012. 30 May 2013 21:30

The spring 2012 started out brilliantly with a Trumpeter Finch, a new species for Gotska Sandön, in the afternoon of 17 May at Båthuset. The bird was seen well but briefly and it was hard to rediscover. 19 May 2012 00:10
