Today we’ll visit part of the “Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network” or WHSRN.
In the morning, we’ll drive from Castro to Peninsula Rilán, where the birding center Bahía Pullao is located. In this wetland, we will learn about some of the species like the Hudsonian godwit (Limosa haemastica) or the black-necked swan (Cygnus melancoryphus), and others that visit or inhabit this bay and we’ll be able to make an excellent observation from the camouflaged shelter built at the edge of the beach. After the visit, we head to Dalcahue, where we will stop to have lunch, before boarding the ferry towards Quinchao Island.
Once in Quinchao, we’ll visit the Chullec wetland, which is also part of the Heritage Route, where we will observe shorebirds. Our last visit will be the church of Achao, declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO and being also one of the oldest churches in the archipelago.
In the afternoon, we return to Castro.
