The nature on Bjørnø
The island is hilly with hills from 16 m to 24 m tall. The tallest hill on the island is Højbjerg (Tall mountain). You can also experience Lysbjerg (Light mountain), which is 16 m tall, or experience Milebjerg (Sand dune mountain), which is 23 m tall. Towards the eastern part of the island, the landscape flattens and goes into a reef and several small islets.
Towards north-west, you can experience a beautiful salt meadow with a rich animal and plant life. If you get lucky, you might hear or see the protected European green toad. You can also see different birds. Especially the sand martin is easy to spot. The sand martin has its nest in the side of the tall cliffs along the south-western coast on the island.
If you take a walk around the island, you will notice that there are no forests on the island. The hilly landscape is the islands biggest force. Notice that the south-western part of the island is protected from March 1st to July 15th because of the birds breeding period. If you bring your binoculars in this period, you can spot breeding grey herons.
