Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopus major), Hisøy, planned "Raet National Park", Norwegian South Coast

The Great Spotted Woodpecker is is distributed throughout Europe and northern Asia, and usually resident year-round except in the colder parts of its range. It is a quite common species, so also on the islands adjacent to the planned national park.[ The Coastal Archipelago Park of the South Coast ("Sørlandet") of Norway covers an area of the Skagerak coast between Grenland in Telemark and Lindesnes in West Agder, including many hundreds of islands and skerries. The Sørland coast is one of the most important recreation areas of Norway and hosts a unique coastal ecosystem with special habitats and a rich biodiversity. Therefore tourism is regulated accordingly with special nature reserves and bird sanctuaries in place. Presently discussed are plans to develop the so called "Raet National Park", outside of Arendal, Grimstad and Tvedestrand and the islands Tromøy and Hisøy.
