Bird watching on Illa de l'Aire

The 1st of April started the ringing migration site at Illa del Aire. Today we have done our first tour to the island with Mark and Andrew. We have ringed lots of migrants: Redstart, Subalpine Warbler, Robin, Song Thrush, Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Dunnock…, and some residents; Linnet, Sardinian Warbler…, but the highlight has been a female of Bluethroat.

We have also seen many birds during our stay on the island: Cory’s Shearwater, Yelkouan Shearwater, Shag, Great Egret, Booted Eagle, Peregrine Falcon, Turnstone, Redshank, Common Sandpiper, Yellow-legged Gull, Audouin’s Gull, Sandwich Tern, Hoopoe, Wheatear, Woodchat Shrike…

Fantastic and sunny day with our friends of Societat Ornitològica de Menorca.
