Great reed warbler

Route POI
Index card


The Rec del Molí, which you have been following for a while is an ideal habitat for many species of bird. Among them, the great reed warbler (Acrocephalus arundinaceus) might be one of the best representatives of the surrounding area.

The great reed warbler is very at home here, as it makes its nest in the middle of the reed beds. Its unmistakable loud song can be heard very close by, but its brownish colouration means that you have to be patient to be able to see it, perching on a cane, as it often does despite its relatively large size. It mainly feeds on insects, although some especially daring ones sometimes take small fish.

Don’t worry if you don’t see them, as on this walk you can also enjoy other birds like storks, cattle egrets, red kites, bee-eaters and many others.
