The surrounding area of the Posada
The Santoña Marshes Nature Reserve, 2875 hectares large, is one of the most beautiful and singular places of ecological interest in all of Europe. It is host to five different ecosystems: the marshes, the Cantabrian holm oak grove, the coastal cliffs, the dunes and the beaches. The surrounding area of the Posada
The charming nature of these marshes is much more striking when considering the huge amount of aquatic birds that use this place for breeding, resting and feeding. Many of the species that migrate from Europe to Africa or the Peninsula, stop over for some days to get their strength back. During the summer and autumn it is possible to catch sight of large groups of mud-living, wading birds, resting at the wetlands, although the highest concentration occurs in winter. There have been counted up to twenty thousand individuals belonging to a hundred different species, including some protected and endangered such as the Eurasian spoonbill, the whimbrel or the grey heron.
