Two rare birds are enjoying outdoor life in the Mar Menor after being born at Murcia’s El Valle Wildlife Protection Centre, and released last Tuesday morning (pictured). The canastera is a protected national species and was once technically declared as extinct in the Murcia region, but it is making a significant return. A number of nests were discovered recently close to farmland and possible danger in the Marina del Carmolí area, with the eggs being taken to El Valle so that they could hatch in safety. The canastera is now a recovering species with some 50 breeding pairs being monitored across the area in places like Los Alcázares and Santiago de la Ribera.
