Famous sea eagles
The area has been visited by several sea eagles for a number of years and is now particularly well known for the sea eagle pair, which can be followed via webcam during the breeding season from early spring through summer to autumn when the chicks leave the nest.
Summer cottages at Brunddragene
Behind the dike are a number of small primitive cottages, the first of which were built from recycled materials such as Ford car shipping crates. They were built around 1930 and listed in 1974.
