Discover the fascinating world of birds in the Delta de l’Ebre Natural Park.
The Delta de l’Ebre is the largest wetland in Catalonia and one of the most important aquatic habitats in the western Mediterranean.
River, sea, bays, beaches, dunes, willows, riverside forests, coastal lagoons, fluvial islands and tusks make up the natural landscape, next to rice paddies, that shelter a great biodiversity of organisms (birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates) perfectly adapted to the different habitats in which we find ourselves.
The Alfacada is a coastal lagoon that is located in the park, forming a mosaic of biodiversity that is very special for the nesting of birds (litt le bitt en, great crested grebe, mallard, red-crested pochard and whiskered tern). All of this is due to the existence of several types of habitat, due to the existing salinity index and the degree of floods that favours the birds to regularly use this lagoon, especially during migratory steps.
