Default Wetlands tours

Does any one know if there is still a local guy who does bird tours of the Wetlands. We went with him a few years ago but no longer have his details. Or do you know of anyone who does this kind of tour.

I know this link is not exactly what you are wanting, I cant find any info re siingle tours, but you may be able to contact them and see if they do daily tours, or know anyone who does locally. Hope this helps.

How about 'do-it-yourself'.
Here is a copy of a previous post by my good self!
Also if you click on Flora and Fauna, in the blue area at top left hand side of this page, under "Background info" there is even more suitable information - hope this helps.

May is a good time to go, not too crowded, not too hot.
S’Albufera is a wonderful place to visit; I’ve been there on several occasions.
It is wetland of International importance and a stopping off place for many birds travelling from Africa to Europe or vice-versa.
It is very large – some 1700 Hectares (4200 Acres), or thereabouts.

Visiting times are 0900 to 1800 1st April to 30th September – 0900 to 1700 1st Oct. to 31st March.
A visiting permit is required and can be obtained ‘free of charge’ from the reception building.
Access can be by foot or by cycle. Cars are not generally allowed - Maybe are for the disabled.
The Park phone number is +34 971 892250.

There are lots of birds and other wildlife to see.
Over 250 species of birds have been recorded.
There are also many fish, frogs, small reptiles, butterflies and insects to look out for.
In winter S’Albufera supports many thousands of ducks and other overwintering species.
I have also seen Buffalo and Horses in the reeded areas nearby as you walk down the tracks.

By bus, get off as near as possible to “Englishmen’s Bridge” which is on the main Alcudia / C’an Picafort road, adjacent
to the site entrance.

Lots of information and maps available – just ‘google’ S’Albufera Mallorca or even Bird Watching in Mallorca.

Closer to Puerto Pollensa is S’Albufereta (small S’Albufera) - a somewhat smaller wetland of about 200 Hectares (500 Acres).
Again lots of birds to see if you are patient. Egrets, Herons, Stilts, Raptors, Hoopoe, Bee-Eaters, etc.
(you can even spot occasional Egret, and even the odd Osprey whilst sunbathing on the beach at P.P. – strange, but true!)
S’Albufereta is just off the Puerto Pollensa to Alcudia road, just by the Club Bahia Resort.
Again lots of info on the web, try [url=http://www.birdinginspain.com].
Good look with your days out and happy bird watching.

There used to be an English gentleman who ran the local "Bird Group Meetings" at the Hotel Pollentia in Puerto Pollensa several years ago. However I understand that he passed away and the Bird Group folded.
I don't know of any such meetings being held anywhere in P.P. nowadays.
BUT there is a lot of local knowledge on this Forum and someone may know otherwise!!
