Årø Kalv er en ca. 3 km. lang landtange på østsiden af Årø.

Havstrømme omkring Årø gnaver af Årøs sydside, og aflejrer materialet igen på Årø Kalv. Derfor består kalven hovedsagelig af forskellige former for sand og grus. Det aflejres i krumme strandvolde, og imellem dem opstår der små lagunesøer der mest af alt ligner marskens slikvade, og der er opstået et krumoddekompleks.

Den ældste del ind mod Årø er omkring 6000 år gammel, og den yderste er ganske ny.

Læg mærke til den store forskel der er på kalvens østside med sandstrand og lave klitter, og vestsiden med standeng, vandhuller og vadeflader.

Naturen

Der er en smuk natur på Årø Kalv, hvor fuglene har fred til at yngle og hvor den rige flora tiltrækker store mængder af insekter.
Da cachen blev placeret (27. juli 2010) så jeg bl.a. følgende fuglearter: Toppet lappedykker, ederfugl, skarv, fiskehejre, knopsvane, rørhøg, strandskade, vibe, storspove, rødben, hvidklire, mudderklire, stor præstekrave, almindelig ryle, havterne, tornirisk, rørspurv. m.fl.

Geocachen

Med mindre du er i båd, kan du kun komme frem til cachen på gåben eller cykel.
Fra P-koordinatet og frem er der lidt over 3 km til FC. Jeg vil foreslå at du tager ad stranden frem til cachen, og hjulsporet retur til P.





Årø Kalv is ca. 3 km. long and you find it on the east side of Årø.

The sea is "eating" from the southside of Årø, and deposit the material again at Årø Kalv. Therefore, the Kalv is composed mainly of different types of sand and gravel.

The oldest part toward Årø is around 6,000 years old, and other parts are quite new.

Notice the big difference on the eastern side of Årø Kalv, with sandy beaches and low dunes, and the west side.

Nature

There is a pretty natura at Årø Kalv where the birds have peace to breed and where the rich flora attracts large amounts of insects. When the cache was placed (27 July 2010) I saw the following bird-species: Great Crested Grebe, eider, cormorant, heron, mute swan, marsh harrier, oystercatcher, lapwing, eurasian curlew, redshank, greenshank, common sandpiper, ringed plover, dunlin, little tern, linnet, reed bunting and others.

The Geocache

Unless you are in a boat, you can only get to the cache on foot or bicycle.
From the P-coordinate and to final there is about 3 km.
I would suggest that you take along the beach until the cache, and wheel-track back.
