Birdwatching in Sardinia

The west coast of Sardinia is a popular destination for birds and birdwatching. The Bosa area in particular is home to a variety of rare types of bird.

Rare bird species of Sardinia

Bird species in the area include the Red Kite, Sylvia Warblers, Barbary Partridge, Golden Eagle, Red-backed Shrike, Crag Martin and Lesser Kestrel while the Sale Porcus Reserve on the Sinis Peninsula in winter and spring becomes home to thousands of flamingos, cormorants, wild geese, mallards and cranes.

Griffon Vultures, north and south of Alghero

The coastal road to Alghero from Bosa is home to two colonies of Griffon Vultures. The first rocky crag harbours the main colony. A smaller colony can be found another 6-8km along the coastal road, and a few pairs still nest at Capocaccia, just north of Alghero.

Flamingos in Oristano

The wetlands around Oristano is worth checking out too as it is the perfect habitat for extensive Flamingo breeding.
