Mallorca is a popular destination for bird-watching, and home to the only island-dwelling black vultures in the world.
The mountains are a great place to spot raptors on the wing, but keen ornithologists won’t want to miss a visit to S’Albufera Nature Parc – the Balearics’ largest and most important wetland.
Despite being only a short distance from the holiday resorts and hotels of Can Picafort and Playa de Muro, this important nature conservation area is home to substantial colonies of herons and purple gallinule, as well as being a stopping point for vast numbers of migrating birds. Around 230 species of bird – some 80 per cent of those recorded from the Balearics – have been spotted, but there other fauna and flora to enjoy too.
Bird migration periods can be particularly rewarding for a visit. Take binoculars, cameras and… mosquito repellent.
