Abicada – Morning Tour 4h

From: 50.00

We start the day by a tidal lagoon. Many waders can be seen on the mudflats: Oystercatchers, Whimbrels, Ringed and Grey Plovers, Dunlins, Redshanks, Bar-tailed Godwits, Turnstones. The path goes on the dykes, along this lagoon and a marsh. Coots are usually seen on the lagoon, sometimes with Flamingos and Spoonbills. On the marsh, depending on the water level, greater or fewer numbers of birds are present. Black-winged Stilts can be quite abundant.

After walking on the dyke, we cross a farmland area with some typical trees: Carob, Fig and Almond trees. It is a good place to see Woodchat Shrikes and Red-legged Partridges. This path will lead us to the roman ruins of Abicada. Unfortunately, there is not much to see as the vegetation has invaded the ruins. From there, we also have a nice view of a small marsh. Marsh Harrier, Spoonbills and Black-winged Stilts are usually present. It is possible to see Little Ringed Plover, Ruff, Purple Heron and Avocet in Spring. Then, we come back to the car on the same track.
