Aiguamolls de Emporda

Late May 2019 Site 2 An established Bee-eater colony can be seen between the two hides on the north side of the pools. Take the path to the second hide, after 150 metres there is ranch fencing and trees on the left-hand side. Look through the trees and there is an obvious small sand bank. In between the fence and the colony there are some perches which provide excellent photo opportunities when the birds are present. (Chris Massey)
