Migrating birds in Mallorca, Spain | Youtube: Vicky Arias
May is a special time of the year on Mallorca for the birdwatcher and nature lover alike. Orchids will be at their best and butterflies will be on the wing, but it is the birds that gather the most interest. Sadly, for the second year in a row, I have been unable to spend migration time on Mallorca, but for those few that are here along with the resident birders, there is the pick of the migration bunch to choose from. In the UK, the Swallow signifies summer for me, but on Mallorca, the ‘bubbling’ call of the Bee Eaters tell me that summer is definitely here.
