White stork

(ciconia ciconia)

Some eighty pairs currently breed in the Aiguamolls de l’Empordà Natural Park, basically in trees in the meadows of El Cortalet, where their nests and even their chicks are visible just a few metres from the itinerary. They make a very loud bill-clatteringnoise with their beaks, that can be heard from a great distance.


Impossible to confuse, whether resting in the meadows, lakes or rice fields or whether in flight.

You will find them in the park...
