Leader for the day: Frank Hair

Information about the meeting:
I intend to start at the visitors centre of the Reserva Natural Concertada Dehesa de Abajo, after a look around the hides here we will be driving along the farm tracks that criss cross this part of Doñana, passing the pumping station and on to the Centro Visitantes Jose Antonio Valverde. We will be stopping here for lunch, there is a small cafe there but it does not do food only drinks and snacks, so packed lunch will be the order of the day. After lunch we will continue along the farm tracks back to the pumping station. From here it is back to the Reserva Natural Concertada Dehesa de Abajo.

Accommodation in the area:
Look at the accommodation of our Affiliated Members in the region

Clothing and food:
Could be cold so warm clothing might be needed.

Possible birds:
Black Kites, Honey Buzzard, White Stork, Short-toed Eagle, Booted Eagle, Griffon Vulture, Spanish Imperial Eagle,Great whit Egrets, little Egrets, Cattle Egrets, Grater Flamingos, Glossy Ibis, possibly Black Stork, also many wildfowl species. These are our most likely birds but we should get some other migrants.

We will be looking for a member to write a trip report for this meeting.
