Waders appear again on their migration south - mostly in July/August, when they can be seen on the meadows, in the shallow water and along the coast.Unless the lagoon freezes over, swans, geese, ducks and coots winter here in great numbers.Many species of duck can be seen here in spring, summer and autumn.In autumn, when the meadows are flooded, huge flocks of wigeon and teal congregate here.
In April and May many waders stop off here before they continue their migration north.Between 20 a large EU LIFE nature re-establishment project was carried out.The Bird Protection Foundation has transformed 25ha of traditionally cultivated agricultural land to dry grassland, which is grazed by cattle, and at the same time has created small areas of wetland and pools for breeding amphibians.Birds: Altogether over 200 different bird species have been noted at Brændegård Sø, and nearly 120 at Nørresø.Brændegård Sø is well known for its cormorant colony, which reached a peak in the 1990's with up to 7100 pairs and was one of the largest in Europe.

The colonies here now have far more nesting birds than Brændegård Sø.The island is moreover an unusual inland nesting site for three of the large gull species (herring gull, lesser black-backed gull and great black-backed gull).Bøjden Nor covers an area of 118ha, of which around 40ha are coastal meadow and have been a bird reserve since 1980. The reserve is owned by the Karen Krieger Foundation and administered by the Bird Protection Foundation.Brændegård Sø is a good site for observing white-tailed eagle, which breeds nearby and is often seen on the island.
The surrounding woodlands are very varied and there are still large areas with old trees, which support several of the more unusual raptors such as white-tailed eagle, honey buzzard, red kite and goshawk.
The lake also houses nesting great crested grebe, mute swan, greylag goose, shelduck and mallard.
Nørresø does not boast so many species of breeding bird, but there are small numbers of great crested grebe and mallard.
