About the bird camera

It is thought that the area around the Ilene Nature Reserve in Tønsberg has the highest density of wetland birds in Vestfold.

The bird camera is located on the west side of the peninsula; you can either view live images on Facebook or YouTube, or control the camera yourself.

The camera is owned and operated by the Vestfold regional branch of BirdLife Norway. The Wetland Visitor center (Besøkssenter Våtmark Ilene) use the camera as part of their teaching. Paths, residential buildings and other places where people stay are anonymised in accordance with GDPR.

The Ilene Nature Reserve is a vital charging station for migratory birds. Here the migratory birds find both food and rest.
