What to do
Wildlife watching hides in Boumort
Boumort National Game Reserve has been a pioneer in the use of hides for wildlife watching and photography. The hide of Boumort feeding station went into service in 2004 and was of the first of Catalonia that responded to a modern vision of wildlife watching hides: integrated in the landscape, with electricity and WC. Since then, and once initiated the reintroduction project of the Cinereous Vulture in the Pyrenees, it has allowed to enjoy the four species of European vultures to many birdwatchers and nature photographers. Other species of raptors, mammals such as foxes or deer, and birds such as the Red-backed Shrike, can also be seen. The Reserve has two other hides that complement the offer for watching scavengers and mammals such as Red Deer or Wild Boar.
