The Stabbursnes nature reserve are located on both sides of the Stabburselva river outlet, and includes some of the country’s largest contiguous shallow water areas, and thus one of the most important wetlands for birds in Norway. There are among others, recorded 23 species of ducks (including six goose species) and 25 species of wading birds in the reserve. The nature reserve has special significance for the rare Lesser White-fronted Goose (Anser erythropus) that rests in the reserve during spring and autumn. On the south side of Stabbursneset a bird watching cabin overlooking the Valdak marshes is available. The cabin is open from spring to fall.
