A Bird watching Valencia is a guaranty to observe many uncommon species. No far from the cosmopolitan city of Valencia, we find one the best birding spots of all Spain, the Albufera de Valencia. This huge park is mainly a freshwater lagoon surrounded by rice field and marshes. In this bird watching Valencia tour, we will visit the main birding spots of this important Natural Park which covers a baste area of 21,120 ha. We will look round the different habitats such as the sandbars, the marshes, the rice fields and the lagoon.
In the Albufera, is possible to watch during the migration up to 90 bird species in one single day. In addition, the area is well-known for attracting large number of uncommon species, especially during the migration. Nevertheless, during the whole year long, a great bio-diversity of fauna and flora can be observed in the Albufera. In addition, the diversity of dragonflies is remarkable.
Some of the species that could be seen in this tour are: Purple Swamphen, Moustached and Savi’s Warbler, Bluethroat, Sandwich Tern, Little Tern, Common Tern, Whiskered and Gull-billed Tern. In addition, Slender-billed and Audouin’s Gull, Balearic Shearwater, Kingfisher, Red-Crested Pochard, Collared Pratincole, Booted Eagle, Marsh Harrier and great number of wintering waders and ducks. Every year in the Albufera de Valencia are recorded rarities or vagrants, specially during September and October.
