Reservoir + fauna + streams
The addition of a water reservoir on the estate has resulted in the return of certain species to the area, some of which are endangered, and has also encouraged repopulation. The reservoir is fed by the runoff from the fields and is an important breeding ground for several species of amphibians, such as the midwife toad, parsley frog, natterjack toad, edible frog, and the Mediterranean tree frog. In recent years we have also observed an increase in the number of mallards and little grebe, and the presence of grey heron. The reservoir is a drinking place for dozens of species that live in this area.
Our estate includes an area of vineyards and woods where native fauna that have found ideal living conditions there can easily be spotted, repopulated certain species of birds and amphibians. The two streams running through the estate, torrent de Can Batllevell and torrent de Santa Cruz, act as biological corridors owing to their riverside shrub species. The depth of these two streams and their vegetation provide the perfect refuge for fauna and nesting forest birds.
The presence of Eurasian sparrowhawks and Northern goshawks has been observed in these areas. Other species observed here are the serin, greenfinch, chaffinch, linnet, cirl bunting, red-necked nightjar, European nightjar, great tit, common blue tit, coal tit, long-tailed tit, woodchat shrike, little owl, tawny owl and Eurasian eagle owl, among other species.
