Bird watching Isla Canela

Bird watching Isla Canela

Isla Canela is in a amazing location surrounded by a nature reserve of wetlands. Throughout the year but particularly in spring it’s a delighted for those who love to take a stroll and watch the bird life. Where to watch Birds in Southern and Western Spain is a great book if your interested in bird watching when visiting Isla Canela. It gives a detailed narrative of how and where you can see the vast array of birds in this area.

Golden carpet of flowers

Golden carpet of flowers

Castro Marim, Portugal

Usually dry in the summer, in the spring the countryside all around our apartment is a carpet of wild yellow flowers. Last weekend I stopped the car to take this photo. It was a cloudy day but the landscape was awash with these stunning flowers which I now know to be Bermuda buttercups.

They currently form a sea of yellow flowers simply everywhere! It’s really quite beautiful and a sign spring is well and truly on its way!

Sunrise over the wetlands Isla Canela, Spain

Isla Canela is a wash with migrating birds over the winter. These wetlands make a great place for them to enjoy some winter sun. Take a bike ride or walk and explore this stunning scenery before return to the beach for a spot of winter sun of your own.

Another amazing photo by togno Mendez.
