Bird Watching Holidays in Mallorca
Spring time in Mallorca, a place of serenity for those seeking relaxation, offers a wide range of dynamic activities for those who love the great outdoors.
One of the longest standing and most popular pastimes is bird watching. There are around 271 different types of birds to spot in Mallorca such as ospreys which can be seen at migration times during the spring and autumn. There is also the exotic looking hoopoe which is present all year round.
There are many bird watching spots in the north and northeast of the island, where it is more mountainous. Albuferetta and the Boquer Valley are perfect destinations to get close to birds, both only a leisurely walk from the coastal town of Puerto Pollença. The area surrounding Puerto Pollença is a hive of avian activity. Amongst the birds, the smallest of all are Firecrests, which although difficult to see are not to be missed and are found perching in the tops of pine trees.
Fornalutx is a wonderful hill-top village that provides pretty vistas from where you can bird watch against a spectacular mountainous backdrop.
S’Albufera National Park — the largest wetlandarea in the Balearic Islands — is a mecca for bird watchers. You can stroll from hide to hide to see birds in their natural habitat. The park also offers binocular hire, which can enhance your bird watching experience. Taking a picnic with you is a good way to complement a wonderful day visiting the park.
