The island for bird lovers
And although many Danes may not have heard of Agersø or considered going there, Agersø is the permanent resting place for the migratory birds, who need a place to rest their feathers on the commute from Africa.
Hans Ulrik, a biologist and ringing birds on the island, had even peeled the same little tower warbler - a regular commuter from Senegal Out of the network for several years in a row.
Despite the fact that Agersø's only town with small street ponds and a nice little lake in the middle of it all is not really big, we still managed to wander around the narrow streets confused to find the shelters that were supposed to be behind it. newly established nature center.
We found them fortunately; a whole bunch of very new and very nice shelters with a campfire site and sea views.
A bike ride to the lighthouse on Agersø
On Agersø, sea views are not in short supply. The island is only 3 km wide at the widest point, so the island feeling arises quickly when you drive around and can see the water on both sides.
There are a few kilometers from tip to tip, so you can easily cycle from the lighthouse and the old cannons at the southern tip, through the old town with inn and mill to the protected bird area at the northern tip.
Best as we rolled off on our mountain bikes, we were about to run into a deer that came leaping. It's hard to say who was most surprised.
We walked all the way up the beach to the north and found a huge rock, we could sit and have lunch on with a view of the Great Belt Bridge, the calm water and the sun right in the berry.
So we sat there and pondered over life - and thought that when such beautiful spots as Agersø are found only 2 hours from København, then one should really get out and enjoy them a little more often.
