Nesseby is usually one of the first places birders visit when they arrive at Varanger. The bay has traditionally been good for Steller’s Eider and the pool behind the church can be good for phalaropes

All the sites in this section are treated, in detail and with precise maps and directions, in my book ‘Finding Birds in Lapland’

If you have any information which you feel would help to update the book, please email me at and I’ll add your observations to these pages
