S'Albufera de Mallorca
S 'Albufera Nature Reserve lies in the north of Majorca, in l'Alcúdia bay. It is a marshy coastline formed by lakes and natural and artificial canals.
The presence of vertebrates in the area deserves a mention. These include, martens, weasels, tortoises and the calopet, amongst others. However, birds dominate this open space, namely the marsh harrier, little bittern, black-winged stilt, purple heron, 'vascon' and moustached warbler..
