If what we want is the observation of all species, from all walks, the best month is May. Earlier this month already have reached almost all species and deployment of the gorges and singing in the wilderness will be overwhelming. In the scarpment, since mid-March will have been singing strongly the Blue rock thrush, because there are several couples breed here.
In May he takes over the singing-here- his relative, the Rufous-tailed rock thrush. In the thick of the river we can see and hear the Garden warbler and Blackcap, the Golden oriole, the European robin, the Cetti's warbler and the Bonelli's warbler. Continue creating vultures and Egyptian vulture, with eggs or very young chicks and chickens recent and more grown the first.
In April we can hear the beautiful singing of the Ortolan bunting, one of the most common birds along with Black-eared wheatear, They are occupying the nearest rocky areas. The Greater short-toed lark and the Tawny Pipit they live also by the environment where it still survives Dupont's lark. We've talked about the difficulties in observing, but nothing to be early a bit in those weeks of May or at the beginning of June, We can hear her singing fluting.
This wilderness can not just walk it in spring. Late August and throughout September, we may be able to detect the low Eurasian dotterel. This area is a favorite haunt for the species and can be seen almost every year, although we must be very attentive to his trademark claim, audible some distance. Other species present in this location is Black-bellied sandgrouse, moving among the heath and farmland further south.
At this time also the joint observation of the reservoir and cut serve to observe a number of species, in some other way and summer and still present. They begin to appear some Great cormorant, Grey heron, Common kingfisher, Common sandpiper... in the reservoir raised the Mallards, the Common moorthen and the Water rail.
As you begin reaching the fall and the weeks will decrease the number of species. The wintering, we will see Meadow pipit on the moor and as is the year Siskins and Common chiffchaff in the riparian forest and, with a little luck, some Alpine accentor it will call at the crags.
