Birdwatching in Mallorca

Mallorca is a wonderful destination for birdspotters. Any Mediterranean island is likely to be good for birds during migration times in spring or autumn when migrants are passing between Europe and Africa and may need to rest en route. However, most Mediterranean islands are relatively dry and unattractive to ducks, terns, gulls, herons, egrets and wading birds whereas Mallorca has the fabulous marsh of Albufera, probably the best wetland site on any Mediterranean island.


In addition, Mallorca is home to birds such as Black Vulture, Eleonora's Falcon, Audouin's Gull, Moustached Warbler and Marmora's Warbler which are all very rare or difficult to see in the rest of Europe.


For birdwatchers wishing to visit Mallorca, our house makes the perfect base as it is not far to the Albufera marsh, the mountains in the north of the island and the seacliffs of Formentor. There are also several great birdwatching spots within walking distance of the town. if you come during the spring migration season (especially mid-April to mid-May) you'll meet lots of other birdwatchers and get plenty of information on what's about.
