Ornithology in Ses Salines

Discover the extraordinary ornithological importance of the southern part of Mallorca. This area is a real paradise for bird lovers, and there are several reasons that make it unique and special. One of the reasons is the quantity and quality of nesting seabirds. In the southern part of Mallorca, almost half of all breeding pairs of Audouin’s gulls find their breeding grounds. In addition, there are also important populations of European storm petrels, Cory’s shearwaters, Balearic shearwaters and cormorants.

This area is also an important habitat for several species of birds of prey, such as ospreys, queen’s falcons and peregrine falcons. In addition, aquatic birds are present both during the breeding season, with species such as stilts, sandpipers, black-legged plovers and white ducks, and during the winter, when flamingos, tiforts, sandpipers and magpies can be seen.

However, the ornithological spectacle is at its best during the migrations, which are particularly remarkable and diverse in this area. Every spring and autumn, thousands of bird lovers come from far-off countries to accompany these migrations and enjoy the exceptional variety of species that pass through. Warblers, warblers, bigheaded warblers, flycatchers, bitxaques, CUA-, swallows, terns, terns, martins, harriers, gannets… the list of migratory species seems endless and captivates the enthusiasm of their followers.

For this reason, the region is protected by several conservation figures, including a National Park and other regional and European protection figures. In addition, there are several SPAs (Special Protection Areas for Birds) found in this area, recognising the enormous importance of the area for birds and their conservation.
