Longer days, increasing temperatures, rain and, of course, their birds mark the spring in Galicia.
Between March and April birds from south arrive, some of then so familiar as common house martins or barn swallows accompanied by the less well-known red-rumped swallows. tree pipits, black kites and booted eagles are coming as well.
Inner areas, with a relatively small number of species, are populated with migratory birds and they fill the air with their trills.
In a few days, well-known common cuckoos will arrive as well common nightingales, common swifts, the colourful bee-eaters and the scarce Montagu's harriers.
Red-backed shrikes, european honey buzzards and another birds will take a month to arrive.
But that is not all. Between March and April some wintering species are still leaving in Galicia. Meanwhile we can see many others migrating birds that are traveling towards north like the northern gannets in the coast or garganeys in wetlands.
On these dates, going out and birding is exciting, do not miss it!
