These days we are enjoying during our bird watching tours. Spring has arrived and also many migrant birds. Normally, first ones to arrive are waders. These days we have seen several groups of ruffs, redshanks or black-tailed Godwit. Last weekend arrived to the island first black-winged stilts. We have also seen some water birds as garganey or the fantastic purple heron, one of our favorite birds. We saw the first purple heron this Sunday. Small migrant are also present everywhere: house martin, sand martin, barn swallow, yellow wagtail, swift, sedge warbler, willow warbler… But the highlight was a little group of alpine swift that we saw on last Sunday between an enormous mixed group of swifts, swallows and martins.
Menorca’ nature is fantastic now. Many flowers grow up everywhere, as our lovely orchids, resident birds sing all time and migrant birds are really abundant. A special time for birding or nature lovers. Next three months will be a great adventure in Menorca with Menorca Walking Birds.
