Wild LIfe


The sunrise on Landön is like a fairy tale. A symphony of screams from gulls from the nature-reserve protected islands, a heron that dances at the shore and a swan family that glides serenely on a mirror-like water surface. At sunset, the insectivourous bats will hunt next to the shore. You can recognize them by their fast-paced flight, and the fact that they lack a tail.

When darkness settles, the nightingale begins its singing which lasts all night. Landön, and the surrounding fields, are rich in rodents that become food for the birds of prey. On the way down to Landön you often see falcons and other birds of prey sitting on fence posts. Should you come here in the winter, you can look for white-tailed and golden eagles. Many birdwatchers visit Landön and nearby Tosteberga during the winter to study eagles and other wintering bird species. 

Each year, a swan couple comes to nest on the beach owned by a neighbor to the campsite. As soon as the chicks have hatched, they will look for food along the beach at the campsite. A warning: Don't get too close! As long as the chicks are small, the parents are will get quite protective against everything that comes too close to the chicks. If you want to feed them then do it from the piers, so that we don't have to have them between the caravans the next day. They always return the next day to the same place, at the same time, to get more food. Hedgehogs are quite common at Landön, they are happy to visit the caravan awnings in their search for something to eat. If they find a forgotten rubbish bag, the caravan owner can find the remains scattered throughout the caravan awning in the morning. Some larger animals can be found at sea, about 15 minutes boat trip in the direction of Åhus. On some stone slabs, we have a seal colony with at least three seals, sometimes more.
