Birdwatching location

Lake Moskujärvi




20 km north of Sodankylä, the road leading to Moskuvaara turns east from the village of Kersilö. Lake Moskujärvi is seen on the right after driving about 10 km. You can spy out on the lake over the fields from the road. You have to walk along the edges of the fields to get to the lakeshore.




This lake is a gathering place for Whooper Swans in April - May and September - October. Among others, Red-throated and Black-throated Divers and Shovelers can be encountered at the lake in the summer. In the spring the Long-tailed Duck, Common and Velvet Scoter, Scaup, Smew, Pintail and Wigeon can be seen. Birds of prey seen are the Hen Harrier, Kestrel and Short-eared Owl. With luck, Little Buntings can be heard singing in patches of willow growing in the fields.
