Sada is one of the privileged enclaves for ornithologists and bird lovers in general, since it is one of the few spots in the world where the largest number of migratory routes converge.
Winter is the best season for sightings and the best places to observe them are the As Delicias Beach and this viewpoint, where you can use binoculars.
From here you will have the opportunity to see seagulls and migratory birds like the turnstones (Arenaria interpres), a small, stocky bird with a brown and white plumage with great skill to turn over stones in search of food. You will find the auk (Alca Torda), from the north and recognisable by its wide, dark beak and white plumage on its chest.
Due to the proximity to the As Brañas wetlands you may see grey herons (Ardea cinerea), egrets (Egretta garzetta) and the common sandpiper (Actitis hypoleucos) or several types of anatidae.
In winter we are also visited by the sandwich tern (Thalasseus sandvicensis), which you will be able to spot by its slender black bill with a small yellow spot at the tip.
Continue along the promenade and discover the Walk of Fame!
