Birdwatching

The Guara Natural reserve is a great place for birdwatching. In particular it is known for having good populations of birds of prey - including Black Kite, Red Kite, Lammergeier, Egyptian Vulture, Griffon Vulture, Short-toed Eagle, Sparrowhawk, Buzzard, Golden Eagle, Booted Eagle, Kestrel, Peregrine and Eagle Owl. If you are very lucky you might see Bonelli's Eagle too. To help the vultures there are special feeding stations where carcasses are put out to provide extra food for the vultures. One of these is within sight of our hotel.

Apart from birds of prey, another special bird in the Sierra de Guara is the Wallcreeper. In the winter months, there are no fewer than 6 sites within an hour's drive of our hotel where this elusive species can be found, so if you miss them in one place there are plenty of others to try. These are described at www.birdguides.com/webzine/article.asp?a=1291

Embalse de sotonera

This is a reservoir which attracts thousands of wildfowl in the winter and terns and waders during passage times. It is most exciting during late February to early March when up to 20,000 Cranes rest here, en route north from their wintering site at Gallocanta. Meeting point of migratory birds to Gallocanta (sotonera y gallocanta).
