Don’t expect to find much nightlife in the Delta from the human point of view; instead, you can find another kind of very interesting nightlife: that of night birds and other living creatures who wait for the night to go outside.

Many birds that we’ve seen during the day keep active at night. The concept “sleeping” in birds is not the same as ours. Some rest time is enough for the brain to have its pause to return to full activity in a short time.

But in the excursion that Picampall will lead at the #dbf2018 on Friday and Saturday night we’ll go after the kings of the night: owls and red-necked nightjars. We’ll go after barn and little owls near inhabited areas, long-eared owls in the few small woods of the Delta and red-necked nightjars in migration who decide to make a stop in dirt roads among rice fields to rest and feed on nocturnal flying insects..

The excursions will start at 19:00 and will last between 2 and 3 hours. We recommend to bring binoculars and telescope, but Leica allows you to prove his night vision binoculars Noctivid. Don’t miss your tickets!
