Hides at Lake Hornborga

  • 18 Sep, 2023

Lake Hornborga is a bird lake all year round. Spring (March-April) is of course the time of the cranes, but it is also a chance to see thousands of whoopers, coots, ducks and waders.

Spring 2024

There will be no photography hides to rent at the Trandansen site in spring 2024. There are a number of reasons for this, but foremost among them is that administration and management are costly and our resources are now more limited. In addition, interest has declined in recent years. A joint decision has therefore been made by the County Administrative Board and the municipality to take a break from renting out photography hides during the 2024 spring crane migration.

However, if you are interested in photographing birds at Lake Hornborgasjön, there are still plenty of possibilities. The cranes often get very close to our viewpoints at the Trandansen site, especially both early and late morning. With a good camera, you have an excellent chance of getting close-up shots even without being in a hide.

On the other side of the lake, at Naturum Hornborgasjön visitor centre, are three permanent hides that are open 24 hours a day and don’t require booking. Here you can get a close-up view of great crested grebes, coots, black-headed gulls and a range of other species. (But no cranes here.)

Around the lake you will find a total of 8 different visitor sites with 9 bird observation towers in all.
