Information about the meeting: We will be under the excellent guidance of Antonio Pestana, well known to many members, and he will provide an itinerary on the day suitable according to both the weather and his experience during the winter. In the beginning we will go to the canyon of the Bailon’s river in Zuheros. For lunch we will go to the Hotel Mitra and after lunch, we will go to the Cabra’s saws. The hotel for people that arrive Friday night, is the Mitra’s hotel. The point of meeting for the day will be in the car park of the hotel.
Clothing and food: It may be cool/cold so bring suitable clothing. Lunch can be taken at a Hotel Mitra or bring a packed lunch, your choice.
Possible birds: Stone Curlew, Spanish Imperial Eagle, Eagle Owl with other raptor species and many smaller wintering birds. The two areas we visit offer diverse species including wintering Crane and will certainly give us a good number of species for the day.
