Under the aeroplanes

Many people don't know that around Barcelona international airport of El Prat we find one of the finest nature reserves in Catalonia, the Llobregat delta nature reserve. Facing the sea on the left side the aeroplanes constantly land and from the right side they take off with ear-deafening noise. The birds don't care at all!

Several hides offer good opportunities to take pictures of the common mediterranean birds and during winter some rare migrants may be seen.

After a visit to the "take-off part" of the nature reserve I managed to get some pictures which were recently accepted.
