Albufera de Valencia is one of Europe´s most important wetlands. Located on a major migration flyway, and consisting of a diverse range of habitats and eco-systems, it is of significant importance to bird life.
It´s a constantly changing environment, influenced not only by the seasons but also the rice growing cycle so there´s always something interesting to see. This designated Natural Park provides habitats for resident birds, summer visitors, wintering species and an array of passage migrants.
Our Albufera de Valencia trip takes in many different “hot spots” of this huge site, often including some restricted and highly protected sites, and is adapted according to the season. By joining us, you can be sure to make the very most of what this site has to offer. If desired, the trip can also be adapted to include a traditional Paella lunch at this, the birthplace of what is probably Spain´s most famous dish, or a specially chartered boat trip on the lake.
The species list for this superb site is far too extensive to include here. However, depending on the season, we can expect to see some fabulous species including Glossy Ibis, Greater Flamingo, Collared Pratincole, Squacco Heron, Purple Heron, Purple Swamphen, Little Bittern, Elegant Tern, Audouin´s Gull, Marbled Teal, Bluethroat, plus a wide range of waders. Raptors include Booted Eagle, Marsh Harrier, Osprey and Peregrine Falcon.
