MORE than 2,450 species of aquatic birds enjoy wintering in Granada’s wetlands, according to an environmental survey.

The ponds and swamps, particularly la Charca de Suarez, are awash with waterfowl taking their winter break, including coots, cormorants and grebes.

Data was compiled by the Junta’s Ministry of Environment for January across Andalucia.

The total number of birds in Granada, not just water-dwellers, numbers five times that amount – around 10,000.
