The whole year is full of plans and options to do in Mallorca. And the natural component is one of them. That is why bird watching, for nature and animal lovers, can be a relaxing and enriching activity…
In fact, Mallorca is proud to announce that it is the only island in this archipelago to find black vultures.
The mountains are usually the perfect place to observe raptors in flight. The most experienced ornithologists have an essential appointment here, that of the S’Albufera Natural Park, the largest and most important swamp in the Balearic Islands.
Despite being a short distance from very crowded areas at the tourist level, such as Can Picafort and Playa de Muro, this area is very well preserved and it contains colonies of herons and purple targüitas, in addition to being a place of passage for large numbers of migratory birds. In this area, around 230 species of birds have been observed (80% of them registered in the Balearic Islands) and also you can enjoy a great diversity of flora and fauna. Migration periods are especially recommended to organize a visit, as there is much more variety and surprises for the visitor.
Do not forget your binoculars, the camera with all its equipment and (with anti-mosquito spray) you can go on an adventure.
