I took the opportunity to walk round the Centre. There are lots of displays, good photographs and some books for sale. It is well worth popping in for a look round should you ever be at the marsh.

It is such an important place for breeding birds and passage migrants and it must be preserved and maintained in top condition at all costs so that future generations may enjoy the splendour of all the magnificent wildlife in Majorca.

We visited the other hides and saw many other fine species including Snipe, the weird and wonderful Purple Swamp-hen, rare Greylag Geese, Stone Curlew, two Greater Flamingoes and many small waders.
