Connecting wetland centres across the world

World Wetland Day 2017 Urdaibai Bird Center-Spain

World Wetland Day at Urdaibai Bird Center (Spain)

The Urdaibai Bird Center celebrated World Wetland Day in 2017 with an Open Doors day. The bad weather, wind, hail and rain, was not an impediment to this event, since the facilities of the center allow to enjoy with great comfort the treasures that this wonderful wetland offers.

The large number of families and visitors who approached the center observed the spectacle offered by the marsh and, as in previous years, the protagonists were the birds that filled the wetland of Gautegiz-Arteaga.

Lapwings, Pintails, Teals, Gadwalls, Spoonbills and the Marsh Harrier were some of the main actors on such a magnificent day.
