The view at Trandansen
There is no bird tower at Trandansen. However you will still have good views and in the spring can get really close to the birds. During March and April, this is the stage for the cranes dancing. At this time you can see cranes, whooper swans and many other resting birds.
Trandansen is a good place for bird watching even outside of the crane season. During winter’s eagle days, when the eagles are fed, this is where you see them best.
In the autumn when the cranes again pass Hornborga, they can be seen at Trandansen again. This is especially so in the evening, when the large flocks go in for landing on the lake to rest. In total, some 220 bird species have been seen from Trandansen.
If you want to get even closer to the cranes in the spring, there is the possibility to sit in bird hide. As these are located in the middle among the birds, you must stay in the hide, a camouflaged shelter, from before dawn until after dusk. These must be booked in advance, and there is fee charged. To hire a crane bird hide, contact email@example.com or phone the Municipality’s switchboard: 0046 (0)515-88 50 00.
