Welcome to Skagen Bird Observatory!

Skagen Bird Observatory and Ringing Station lies at the top of Denmark as a part of Skagen Grey Lighthouse – Center for Migratory Birds, situated in the beautiful landscape towards Grenen. Skagen is a pivot for migrating birds when they pass through Denmark on their fantastic journey. For many years birdwatchers have flocked to Skagen to experience the birds.

Experiences we would very much like to share with you!

The birdwatchers in Skagen are very happy that after several decades of vain attempts they have now found a physical place for a Bird Observatory. When Realdania in 2017 finished the renovation of the historical lighthouse buildings, Skagen Bird Observatory has moved into the building in cooperation with Birdlife Denmark, The Danish Nature Agency, Frederikshavn Municipality, and the Top of Denmark – for the benefit of both birds and people!
