Lo Monte

This is a small site, not far from Mil Palmeras and Pilar de la Horadada. The site has two pools, surrounded by reedbeds. Access is only permitted to the area on one side of the pools, close to the car park.There are several hides and a picnic area. Depending on the time of year, Pochard, Shoveler, Teal, Gadwall, Wigeon, White-headed Duck, Little Grebe, Great Crested Grebe, Coot, Moorhen, Cormorant are regularly seen on the ponds and Night Heron roost in the pine trees.   Other small birds can be seen in the reeds and, if the water levels are low, birds such as Grey Wagtail and Bluethroat can be seen at the edges of the pools. A Spotted Crake has made an appearance in the past. Spring and autumn migration might produce some rarities here.
