Information about the meeting:

We will be visiting the area around the natural park Sierras Subbeticas, ending up at the mirador de las Sierras Subbeticas. I think it is preferable to eat a picnic so as not to waste time waiting to be served in a restaurant.

Clothing and Food:

Clothing:  In the sierras Subbética we can find a warm day or a cold day. So warm clothing is recommended for the first hours and keep an eye on the weather in case it rains.

Food: This will be a picnic lunch. However, there is the possibility of stopping at a venta or restaurant for those that do not want a picnic lunch there are 2 at the bottom of the hill we will be driving up.

Possible birds: Griffon vulture, Chough, Black wheatear, Crested lark, Thekla lark, Blue rock thrush, Kestrel, Bonelli,s eagle, Song thrush, Stonechat, Wren and poss Crossbills.

1. We will ask a member to write a trip report for our experiences of the day.

2. Members can invite guests, but they must join the Society on the day for insurance purposes.

3. We will ask members in attendance to drop a voluntary micro-contribution in a collection box to help support a nominated ABS conservation project.
