Birdwatching in Sardinia (Italy)!
  Slightly smaller than Sicily, Sardinia is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean, rich in unspoilt out of-the-way places. Described as a micro-continent for the variety of its ecosystems, Sardinia is rich in mountains, forests, lowlands, largely uninhabited areas, gorges, long sandy beaches and rocky shores. In modern times many travellers and writers have praised its beauty, which remained intact at least until recent decades, as well as its landscapes, its remarkable monuments from the prehistoric Nuragic civilisation, its ancient traditions and its delicious food.
Given its location in the middle of the western Mediterranean between Europe and Africa, the island lies on the Mediterranean flyway and is an important refuelling stop for migrating birds.
Wetlands are the most important sites in springtime, with many species stopping for some days before going north. During the breeding season these areas are very important for Greater Flamingo, Audouin’s Gull, Little Tern and several other species of waders, gulls and terns. The breeding season is also a good time to see also ‘special’ resident species like the Little Bustard in display or hear the flight call of the Corsican Finch.

The Sardinia’s must-see species are:
Greater Flamingo, Eleonora’s Falcon, Purple Swamphen, Little Bustard, Audouin’s Gull, Marmora’s Warbler, Corsican Finch, Griffon Vulture, Barbary Partridge
