Ornithological course visiting Salobrar de Campos

Last October 5th and 7th took place the second part of the ornithological course organised by NHS-Balears Wildlife and the Balearic Museum of Sciences.

On Friday there was a talk about post-breeding migration and the autumn season in the Balearics and in Majorca.

José Luis Martínez was the person in charge to give the talk

And on Sunday there was a trip to observe some species of migrants and sedentary birds at the Salobrar de Campos and Salines Cape.

Next observation point was Salines Cape, where we could see some species like Swallows and raptors flying to Cabrera Island or direct to Africa.

Next December will take place the last part of this course to speak about the wintering in Majorca.
