Covadonga Lakes are located in a subalpine ecosystem where many bird species feed and breed along Summer months. With this birdwatching activity we blend an amazing landscape with an interesting bird species range.
We drive you up to Covadonga Lakes (Picos de Europa) in one of our vehicles to enjoy the birds we can find on this area. Before reaching the lakes we stop at the Mirador de la Reina viewpoint. From here we can take in the amazing sights and we can also see the vulture and lammergeier feeding point.
Once we are at the top of the road, we walk around Ercina Lake and observe some common Summer bird species in this nature spot: griffon vultures, maybe bearded vultures, eagles, redstarts, yellow-billed choughs, northern wheatears and many other species.
Is a short walk feasible to anyone, with almost no slope and by the lake shore.
We provide you with binoculars, a terrestrial telescope and bird guides. We also have as well binoculars for children.
We depend on the weather: in the case of a rainy day we would change the walk to another day (hopefully a sunny one!) or you could Build a nest box with us!
