A visit can start at the lighthouse at Punta Subrido, with good morning views overlooking the Cíes islands and the seabirds in the mouth of the Ría de Vigo. The most interesting species in this area are undoubtedly the european shag, northern gannet and balearic shearwater. From Cabo Home there are excellent views over the north end of Illas Cies and, from August onwards, parasitic jaeger and great skua can be spotted. In the spring and autumn months, when covering the trail that leads to Donón, pay attention to the sea to spot migrating birds, in addition to other residents such as the rock bunting and Dartford and sardinian warblers. In the breeding season it is possible to see an occasional alpine swift as well as a blue rock thrush on the rocks.
At one point the route can either take a path to the north and visit the Soavela coast or descend towards O Hío while walking among the pines groves, where there are european nightjars that can be seen at dusk and at night. The end of the Ría de Aldán, in Vilariño, sightings can be had of common gull, black-necked grebe, eurasian oystercatcher and, in winter, razorbill . Further north, in autumn, especially with strong southwesterly winds, Cabo Udra is a good point for watching seabirds. Just off the cape, there is in September the chance to see dozens of parasitic jaegers in a single roost in Galicia.
