Little and Spotted Crakes (Porzana parva, P.porzana) at P.N. Aiguamolls de l'Empordà, Girona, Catalonia, March 2003 

Photos by Luis José Salaverri 

Introduction

NE Spain is one of the best places for crakes in the country. Amongst the places where they can be most easily seen it stands out the Aiguamolls de l'Empordà Natural Park (in catalan, 'the Empordà county marshes Natural Park). This area offers a wide range of habitats favoured by migrant crakes at the monthly chronicles of this website demonstrate and the following photos taken by visiting birder Luis José Salverri, from Galicia, always escorted by the local bird-recorder Jordi Martí-Aledo are a good proof of this site value and potential.
