Puerto Pollença is a well known bird-watching point in the North of Majorca, just a short drive away from Monnaber Nou. Any birdwatcher should come to Majorca to admire the great variety of bird species that either live on the island or stop here during their migration flights between Europe and Africa.
S’Albufera, between Puerto de Alcudia and Ca’n Picafort, also very close to our hotel, is the biggest wetland on the island and home to 250 different bird species and therefore also a very important bird-watching site. Among the species you are likely to spot at the Albufera are Black-winged Stilts, Kentish Plovers, Glossy Ibis, Spoonbills, Flamingos…
On the northern tip of the island, the Formentor Peninsula offers not only breathtaking views of its spectacular cliffs, but also the possibility to view Eleonora’s Falcons, Peregrine Falcons, Pallid Swifts, Crag Martins, Nightingales, Blue Rock Thrushes, Balearic Warblers, Firecrests, Ravens or Crossbils in their natural habitat.
In addition, the island of Majorca is where the last insular colonies of Balck Vultures reside and is also home to species such as Bee-eaters, Audouin’s Gulls, Ospreys, Night Herons, Eleonara’s Falcons, Scops Owls, Hoopoes, Moustached Warbler and Marmora’s Warbler, most of them extremely difficult to find in the rest of Europe.
