Photographer's Note

El Parque Natural de la Albufera de Valencia esta situado a escasos kil鏔etros de la ciudad de Valencia. El lago limita al norte, al sur y al oeste con arrozales, mientras que al este limita con la devesa de la Albufera.

El Parque Natural de la Albufera fue declarado como tal en 1986, tiene una superficie aproximada de 21000 hect嫫eas y se sita en la regi鏮 suroriental de la plana de Valencia.

La Albufera tiene una gran importancia ecol鏬ica ya que forma parte de la lista de 嫫eas hmedas de importancia internacional y, adem嫳 de ello, es considerada Zona de Especial Protecci鏮 para las Aves (ZEPA).

Destaca la presencia del artet y el samaruc, que son endemismos mediterr嫕eos, relegados a los ullals y a las acequias que aun conservan una calidad de aguas aceptable.

This famous laguna south of Val鋝cia is an important wetland, and birds of passage love to feed in its surrounding rice fields. People like to eat here, too: the village of El Palmar, more or less surrounded by LAlbufera, has been transformed from a collection of reed-thatched fishermens huts into an agglomeration of restaurants, each trying to outdo the others with the magnificence of its paella valenciana. You come here, therefore, to watch birds through binoculars and then, when the sun has set, to study menus with equal intensity. It is sometimes very difficult to move after one of these gargantuan feasts of rice, game birds and seafood. Fortunately for the comatose (although not for resident birds), there is a surfeit of nearby beach hotels along the strip of land between the laguna and the sea; in any of these you can sleep off the effects of a too-rich paella and be none the worse for it the next day.
