1 Corsica April 30th May 17th 2012 A Trip Report by Tim Hajda

2 Introduction Corsica is a stunningly beautiful French island in the western Mediterranean Sea. Thanks to its relatively low population density (90 people per square mile) and large amount of protected areas, much of Corsica remains fairly undeveloped. Corsica has many bird highlights: one endemic (Corsican Nuthatch), several regional endemics and endemic subspecies, and a nice variety of southern European species. With its straightforward public transportation system and numerous campgrounds, I decided that Corsica would be a good destination for my first trip to Europe. Last May I spent 15 days birding around Corsica using public transportation and tent-camping most nights at campgrounds. Overall the trip was a success: the weather was great, there were very few logistical issues, and the scenery was fantastic. I ended up with a fair 90 species, including the nuthatch and all of the regional endemics. Difficulties included covering large distances on foot, not knowing French, and poor access to food. Most of the bird misses were migrants and high-altitude species.

The total was $910.80, which was actually a better price than I was able to find on any of the consolidator websites. Ferry After doing some research, I figured the cheapest way for me to get to Corsica would be to fly into Nice and then take the ferry operated by Corsica Ferries to Bastia. I purchased the ferry tickets on the Corsica Ferries website. They cost round-trip. The ferries boarded at the Corsica Ferries terminals at the

3 ports in Nice and Bastia. Getting Around For most of the trip, I used the train and bus system to cover the long distances and then walked the rest of the time. Trains: the train network in Corsica is limited (map: and infrequent but it got me where I needed to go. I rode from Furiani to Corte and then Corte to Ajaccio. The Furiani station was closed when I got there, so when I got on the train I was asked where I wanted to go and then my fare was calculated on a little machine. It was around 9. When I got on at Corte, I was able to purchase a ticket at the ticket counter in the station. It was I got the timetables and other information off of this website: There were also timetables posted at all of the stations and at some of the campgrounds. Buses: there were no buses running when I arrived in Nice due to Labor Day, so I walked from the airport to the hostel. To get to the airport for my return flight on my way home I took the airport express bus from Place Massena to the airport for 4. I got my Nice bus travel information from the hostel staff. The buses on Corsica were nice and comfortable albeit expensive. I took a bus from Ajaccio to Bonifacio ( 22), from Bonifacio to Porto-Vecchio ( 9), from Porto-Vecchio to Bastia ( 22). I got my route information and timetables off of this website: Accommodation I chose to sleep in my tent at campgrounds as much as possible to cut down on costs. The Corsican campgrounds were quite nice with hot showers, electricity, washing sinks, and helpful staff. I also spent two nights in a hostel in Nice and one night in a hotel in Bastia because there were no campgrounds near enough to the ferry ports. I found all of the accommodations using Google. Nice: Villa Saint Exupery Beach Hostel. Website: Bastia: Camping L Arinella/Camping Les Sables Rouges. No website but here s a map: Hotel Posta Vecchia. Website: Étang de Biguglia: Camping San Damiano. Website: Restonica Valley: Camping de Tuani. Website: Corte: Camping le Restonica. No website but here s a map: Bonifacio: Camping l Araguina. Website: Porto-Vecchio: Camping U Stabiacciu. Website: Food I purchased most of my food at supermarkets, sandwich shops, pizzerias, and bakeries. Getting food was a challenge while I was staying at the more remote campgrounds, namely Camping San Damiano by Étang de Biguglia and Camping Tuani in the Restonica Valley, as they were relatively far from any supermarkets or restaurants. If you are on foot and are staying at campgrounds out of the towns, be sure to bring plenty of food with you. Also, most businesses are closed on Sundays, so plan accordingly. Equipment and Other Resources

4 I brought along my spotting scope and tripod, which proved to be more of a burden than an asset due to the extra weight and bulkiness. It was great to have at Étang de Biguglia and while seawatching at Bonifacio, but I didn t use it very much the rest of the time. It really was a pain to lug around and I would discourage anyone travelling by foot and public transportation from bringing theirs along unless they re planning on spending the majority of their time looking at far away waterbirds. I got a lot of my site information from various trip reports on the Travelling Birder website. Unfortunately the website has been down recently and I don t recall the authors names. I purchased the Lonely Planet Corsica guidebook which proved to be fairly useless. I ended up leaving it at home. It s mostly full of information on touristy spots, hotels, and restaurants. Birding Sites Nice: I wandered around the Place Masséna and the Cimetière du Château before catching the ferry. Just city birds around most of Nice. The Cimetière had a lot of trees and was a good introduction to some of the common woodland species. Nice-Bastia Ferry: There were several open decks where I could scan the sea. However, there were no birds until we started down the eastern side of Cap Corse, where I got brief but good looks at Yelkouan and Cory s shearwaters. Étang de Biguglia: You probably need a car to make the most of this huge wetland. I was only able to cover a small part of the eastern side but did end up with some very nice birds. There is a footpath that runs along the Route de la Lagune; I walked along that and scoped the lagoon from any open areas in the trees (which were few). I also walked a short ways west on the dead-end dirt road that goes out onto the peninsula. A scope is essential here as most of the birds were quite far away. Restonica Valley: The majority of the pine woodland is in the upper part of the valley. I walked along the main road (D623) and hiked the trail that climbs the ridge to the north towards a couple sheepfolds and eventually the Refuge de la Sega; the latter was definitely the most productive for birds for me (specifically Corsican Nuthatch and Corsican Finch). You ll probably need a car to get to the really high altitude trailheads at the end of the road. It was too far for me to walk so I missed a lot of the alpine species. Bonifacio: For maquis-dwelling species I focused on the area northwest of Bonifacio along N196. I wandered around some trails south of the road and didn t come up with much. The maquis south of the road was very tall and lush so I walked north onto D60. The maquis around here was much shorter and sparser and fortunately turned up all of my targets (Red-legged Partridge, European Turtle Dove, and Dartford and Marmora s warblers). For sea-watching in Bonifacio, I found the best spot to be the overlook right beneath the entrance to the citadel, where I got fantastic looks at both shearwaters. Porto-Vecchio: This portion of the trip was mostly focused on the wonderful beaches of the area. It was a more developed area and most of the birds were just the common species.
