This project, implemented by Institut Català d’Ornitologia (ICO), will consist of the restoration of a bird monitoring station in Llacuna de l’Alfacada, included in Sylvia program, that had temporarily been suspended for economic reasons. Furthermore, a monitoring of the bird colonization will be done in a 60 Ha site, beside Alfacada, owned by INCASOL, recovered for its birds populations inside LIFE Delta Lagoon Project. In particular, a monitoring of the common red bunting (Emberiza schoeniclus), whiterby subspecies, which is almost endemic of the Mediterranean slope of the Iberic Peninsula, and known at Delta as Picampall. It is considered that the population of this bird is declining and we must, therefore, favour its habitat preferences.
