March day trip around Canet-en-Roussillon
BLDT03-21 Saturday 20th March 2021 – Day trip birding around Canet-en-Roussillon
Guide of the day: Karline Martorell accompanied by Philippa Benson
Weather conditions: Very strong NW wind, mostly sunny, temps ranging from 6°C to 11°C
Highlights of the day: Bluethroat, Great spotted cuckoo and Iberian green woodpecker
As a reward for putting up with challenging weather conditions, we were treated to some great views of our target species! We felt particularly lucky to get a really excellent view of a male Bluethroat in full breeding plumage feeding out in the open. This excitement was soon followed by a short but clear view of a Great spotted cuckoo. And we were pleased to be able to show all participants close-up views in the scope of the distinguishing features of Iberian green woodpecker, also feeding in full view.
