    Mallorca 2022

    Hi Mike, Yes, we were in touch a while ago. We've been coming to Mallorca since 2009 most years, up until recent times, but always in April/May. It will be good to experience the Autumn migration for a change. I have missed it so much. If we didn't have commitments here in the UK, I think we'd...

    Bird Call Help

    Mallorca 2019

    Hoping this link works. Just seen it on a Puerto Pollensa group I'm a member of on Facebook. Not great quality but hoping for some help on ID please. I would presume Barn Owl but just wondered about SEO with the markings underneath. If the link doesnt work I will try something else...

    Mallorca 2017

    Thanks Mike, I would say they were Balearic too having looked in my book back at the hotel. If I'd been quicker, I might have got a record shot of them on my phone! As for the Scop's Owls, will they still be calling at dusk at this time of year? I know of the site near to the Pollensa Park but...
