The new sea watching hide at Lista lies at the entry to Norway's most important migration flyway for seabirds. The sea watching hide is built to make the fascinating natural phenomenon of bird migration accessible to everyone.

Every spring and autumn thousands of birds pass by on their way to and from breeding areas. Some breed in Norway, others are on their way to more distant destinations such as Svalbard and Siberia. Migrating birds use the coast line as a guide to find their way, and pass close by the sea watching hide when they come around the Lista peninsula. Now in the beginning of March, the very first migrants pass by; gannets, gulls and shelducks.
