Boquer-Valley2

Boquer Valley

The Boquer Valley is situated on the edge of Puerto Pollensa only a few minutes walk from the famous Pine Walk Avenue often very good for migrants.

There is a car park at the entrance just off the roundabout on the road to Formentor. To the left of the footpath leading from the car park there are olive groves and an almond orchard frequently visited by Redstarts, Flycatchers and Warblers, especially during migration. Continuing along the path through the pines on the left you will often see Cirl Buntings and Wrynecks.

Passing through the closed gates and following the mountain paths takes you towards the sea. Along this route you should sight Booted Eagles, resident Vultures, Peregrines and Ravens. On rock faces and boulders you will often see Blue Rock Thrushes.

Summer often yields surprises including Golden Orioles, Ospreys and Eleonora’s Falcons.
