After the festival and a hiking trail to clear the cobwebs, we decided to check out the largest lake in the region and frolic with the local fauna. The shallow water teems with Crustacea and my favourite bird, the crane. We got some use out...More

This is one of the most important sites in Europe for Greater Flamingos, however they depend on the lagoon having sufficient water in order to breed there and when there has been a particularly dry winter this leads to a water shortage in the spring....More

Admittedly we arrived after the visitor centre closed at 7pm ... but it would make sense for it to open a bit later? The paths are well maintained, but the flamingoes were a long way from the visitor centre. Some other birds nearer by ...

Tranquil location and well laid out paths towards the lakes/hides with quite a few flamingoes and other birds to see. But why does the Visitor Centre shut for siesta? What a stupid situation for a tourist attraction; it's not like there's a shortage of unemployed...More

Hi - We are thinking of visiting this weekend 23rd January to see the Whooping Cranes. Will you be doing your tour then? I have visited a number of times to see the flamingos. How many whooping cranes are at the lake at the moment?
