Lluc Lluc Lluc

The drive to Lluc is not too farfrom Pollensa - only 20km - but this is prolonged due to the mass of cyclists who insist on populating the whole of the narrow winding roads on the ascent to this popular tourist magnet. The draw is the monastery, and that is it for most, but there are some easy and interesting rambles using the car park next to the ageing buildings as a base. We chose a 6 mile circular route which winds East of our parking spot, bring mainly in the shade of the woodland, with occasional excursions into the open. There wasn't a great variety of birds overall, but strangely the most interesting were in the vicinity of the monastery. Both Nightingales and Wrynecks were heard in the car park, with one of each being seen just outside of the boundary walls. Nightingales were heard regularly along the walk, but the most common species by far was Chaffinch, with Spotted Flycatcher a close second. A Black Vulture flew overhead, and a single Balearic Warbler was in scrub next to the track in open woodland, making up for their absence in the Boquer Valley.
