HotelFacts: #2: The Stork’s Nest

For the second in our Hotel Facts series, we turn to Spain – the Castile y Leon area to be precise and Abadia Retuerta LeDomaine – a stunning hotel & winery estate dating back to the twelfth century.

On the bell tower of the former Santa Maria de Retuerta Abbey, eagle-eyed guests may spy an extra large bird’s nest – the spring and summer home to a returning stork family and their young brood.

Estate staff keep a benevolent watch over the young family as one by one, the young leave the nest.  Indeed, for nature lovers and ornithologists, this estate is a bit of a gold mine for avian rarity.  The 700 hectares Estate and immediate area is home to over 130 different species of bird and the hotel has a full list of species sited within the grounds.  These include cormorants, storks, mallards, ospreys, red kites, buzzards, sparrowhawks, sparrows, starlings, chaffinches, crossbills, peregrine falcons and many more.
