Probably the most important Danish wetlands area is the vast location known as “Vejlerne”, owned by the Danish bird- and wildlife protection foundation AVJF, in the far NW corner of Jutland. Now “vast” in this context should be considered in Danish terms – we consider it BIG, but it isn’t big on a, say, Yellowstone scale – think 5600 hectares, or 56 km². Up there, birds and wildlife have had a permanent sanctuary since the area was acquired by AVJF in 1993.
This means there are very many birds, and whenever I’m in the ‘hood I like to check out some of the hotspots. On Sunday afternoon I was driving home from a paragliding site near there, and fortunately I had my bird photo gear with me. The light was perfect, and I had decided to simply be patient, and wait until sunset to see if the bearded tits would come out to play – this gallery is the result. Remember to click on the first image to see them all in full size, and if browsing on a Windows platform consider hitting f11 to get the full viewing experience.
