As of 1 August 2017, 232 different species of bird have been registered in Værlandet and Bulandet. Every year, particularly in the autumn, new species arrive in the area. As with other outposts in coastal areas, the most exciting times for bird watching are May/June and September/October. You
are almost guaranteed to have numerous birds and some rare species passing Værlandet and Bulandet at this time in the autumn. More than 200 different species have been registered in September and October, so the diversity is vast from passerine birds to birds of prey and seabirds.
As relatively few ornithologists visit the islands in the west of Sogn og Fjordane, you may still observe species that have not yet been seen in the area. This makes bird watching all the more exciting here. In recent years, there have also been observations of species not previously seen in Norway.
Askvika, Straumen and Kyllaren are other areas of great interest for ornithologists and other bird enthusiasts.
