I confess I only investigated this site on seeing photos of a rather fine Western Reef Heron recently found there. However, my interest was further whetted by an interesting recent video (albeit somewhat propagandistic and with a vaguely robotic voice over) about the place and its birdlife which I found online -
see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRyHaR-EuBk

I was also interested to watch a second video on the fish farming there -
see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzoY7IMQAVM (if I've missed typed the addresses then simply search Veta la Palma). It sounds altogether too good to be true! Does anyone have any views?

The video seems to suggest that birders can visit the area, but does not give details and neither does the website on the place (www.vetalapalma.es). It certainly seems a wonderful place - does anyone know about access arrangements?

Dear John and Derek,

Apologies for the delay but I have been waiting for the most up to date news from my Spanish contacts in the area since the fish farm has changed owners relatively recently.
ThereĀ“s now no need, unfortunately, to send a long private message to John since at present no members of the public can visit this area. If the situation changes in the future I will of course let you both know and indeed will publish the information here in case others may be interested. 

Br,
Alexandra
