Information about the meeting,

We will be going to this wonderful spot to bird in this strange but amazing geological area. We will meet in the carpark from where we can explore the geological features of El Torcal along with the varied bird life.  This is also a good spot to get some fantastic photos of the Spanish Ibex.  I intend to do a longer walk than we have done in the past.

Accommodation in the area,

Check the ABS web site

Clothing and Food

It will be hot at this time of the year so hats and plenty of water is advised. As there is a decent restaurant there, we will be having lunch in the restaurant.

Possible birds,

Black Wheatear, Blue Rock Thrush, Sardinian and Dartford Warbler, Griffon Vulture, Booted Eagle, Short toed Eagle, Rock Bunting, Rock Sparrow and plenty more.

Other sites in the area for those staying overnight,

El Torcal is south of Antequera so Fuente de Piedra is not far away, but it could be dry at this time of the year depends on how much rain we get from now until then.
