Best places close to Seville for Birdwatching in Spring are Doñana, Gualdaquivir Marshes and Tarifa (Strait of Gibraltar) . Tipical species from the south of Spain are involved in the breeding season, looking for a couple and making the nests as Little Swifts or Bald Ibises. Warbles, Purple Swamphens, Harriers, Storks, everybody is looking for a place to continue the survival of the species!
