Birds of Liavatnet

Liavatnet is a small lake in the middle of Åsane, the northern suburb of Bergen. The lake is surrounded by built-up areas and is an important recreation area for families living in the area. A graveled path has been built around the lake, popular for small walks in the neighbourhood. Ducks and gulls can be seen in the lake at all seasons. Mallards are the most numerous ducks but a number of other bird species can also be seen. Most of the birds use the lake for foraging.
