Birding the Northern Areas of Menorca
A half-day Bird Watching in Northern Menorca Trip that is leisurely paced and available on request. In Menorca there are three important salt marshes, all situated in the north of the country.
From the point of view of bird watching, the best of these is the one at Addaia, within the Natural Park of Albufera des Grau. Around it are tamarind forests that provide a refuge for a wide range of birds. The saline waters provide a rich source of food for a variety of waders that can be seen in numbers. Depending on the time of year you can expect species such as Black-winged Stilt, Greenshank, Ringed Plover, Little Ringed Plover, Little Stint, Curlew Sandpiper, Dunlin, Ruff, Wood Sandpiper, Common Sandpiper, Avocet and Greater Flamingo.
Albufera des Grau is the only Natural Park on the island of Menorca, created in 1995. It has become the main wintering area on the island for many types of ducks and herons and a major stopping point for all sorts of birds in the migration seasons in spring and autumn. So bird watching in Menorca at those times is to be recommended.
On this half-day trip we will take in two or three different spots in the north of the island where we know there are always surprises and wonderful landscapes sculpted by the action of the sea and the northern wind. It is a chance to discover all of Menorca's wildlife: endemic plants, dragonflies and damselflies as well as birds.
