Day trip birding around Gruissan

Day trip 5th May 2021 – A real pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!

Guide of the day: Karline Martorell accompanied by Philippa Benson
Participants: 8
Weather conditions: Sunshine, clouds and rainbows – with a strong westerly wind. Temps from a chilly 8° to a very warm 20°+
Highlights of the day: White stork, Spoonbill, Purple swamphen (out in the open!), Woodchat shrike (male and female perched next to each other), Slender billed gull, Little tern and the feldegg subspecies of Yellow wagtail.

We are so spoilt to have such a wide diversity of habitats in such a small area! And the rainbow as we set out for the day was an excellent sign of things to come 🙂 Great species with some really excellent views in good light conditions and all in stunning landscapes with a large dose of sunshine – what more could one want!
