A magnet for gulls and grebes
These bodies of water provide an opportunity for water birds to thrive in a large area in the heart of the province of A Coruña. Bird watchers can enjoy a large number of ducks, grebes, cormorants and gulls, especially in autumn and winter. The Vilagudín e Vilasenín reservoirs date from the early 1980s and supply water to the population of the region and to industry (Meirama thermal power plant). They are also intensive fishing preserves.
Thousands of gulls use these bodies as a resting place to clean their feathers outside of the breeding season.
