Evretou and Theletra

Wednesday, 24 August 2011

The reservoir at Evretou can be one of the most productive wetland sites in the west of the island. The hills around here and Theletra have breeding Bonelli’s Eagles and Long-legged Buzzards.

The main part of the reservoir is usually too deep for many birds

But the neck-end of the reservoir usually has shallow marshy areas for waders and herons. The road you see here usually continues across the valley over a bridge with pools and marshes either side. in April 2010 however the whole area was underwater.
