We felt privileged to see flamingoes from the brow of the hill in front of the visitor centre ( which was closed when we visited on the Tuesday lunchtime) and got reasonable views with strong binoculars but it was disappointing not to be able to...More

I visited the Laguna with non-birding family members who were keen to see the flamingos. The water level was so low that all the birds were in one corner -fortunately within viewing distance! There were smaller ponds however with waders, grebes and juvenile White-headed Ducks....More

This is a lovely spot but you must be aware that with any wildlife, this is seasonal. In the dry seasons (summer/autumn) there is very little water and the birds are on just a couple of small ponds near the visitors centre. For birders there...More
