Migratory and resident birds

Birds under thickets and in the fields

Some birds including songbirds and starlings  leave Denmark in the winter; many birds of prey, blackbirds and tits remain.

At the same time, thousands of geese and swans arrive in Denmark from northern Scandinavia and the Arctic.

They graze on fields where winter crops are grown. In the spring they return to the north.
