BO­QUER VAL­LEY

Bird Watching (UK) - - Uk Bird Sightings -

Right on the edge of Puerto Pol­lensa, the Bo­quer Val­ley is of­ten a very good spot to find newl­yarrived mi­grants. The car park is just off the round­about on the road to Formentor, and to the left of the path lead­ing from the car park are olive groves and an al­mond or­chard fre­quently vis­ited by Red­starts, fly­catch­ers and a va­ri­ety of war­blers, es­pe­cially dur­ing mi­gra­tion. Fur­ther on, near the pines on the left, look for Cirl Buntings and Wry­necks. Next are gates to a pri­vate es­tate – access is al­lowed, but do not linger on the pri­vate prop­erty. Be­yond them, fol­low test­ing but not dif­fi­cult moun­tain paths to­wards the sea, keep­ing an eye out for Booted Ea­gles, Black and Grif­fon Vul­tures, Pere­grines and Ravens, while Blue Rock Thrushes use the many prom­i­nent ledges and boul­ders as perches.
