Explore wildlife in the hard steppe

In the Steppes wildlife need to work hard in order to survive in such an extreme environment. Here strong winds, freezing or burning temperatures are common.Moreover, in Seville´s Steppes long time ago humans transformed the land to plant a range of crops. And in last decades intensive farming and new varieties of cereal are becoming more and more common, increasing the challenge of wildlife to survive. In fact most of the steppe birds species are endangered despite the fact that Andalucia has huge areas to accommodate them in big numbers.

In this tour you will go through huge cereals and sunflower farms looking for any shy steppe birds. The best areas for birding are not far from some historic towns: Carmona and Osuna (Seville)

During the breeding season you could spot amazing birds like European Roller, European Bee Eater, Montagu´s Harrier or Collared Pratincole

But maybe the queen of this route is the biggest bird in the world that can fly, the huge Great Bustard. The males can weight 16 kg! Although Great Bustard is a resident specie, in order to spot it, the best seasons are autumn and winter. Despite being a big bird is not easy to find it because they are normally shy and use their superb camouflage.

Among this species, you could also find others like Spanish Sparrow, Calandra Lark, Little Bustard, Stone Curlew, Black-Shouldered Kite, Marsh and Hen Harrier, etc… and if you are lucky the Black-Bellied Sandgrouse!

The old mountains of Sierra Morena

 

The Sierra Morena is one of the main mountain ranges in Iberian Peninsula and made the north border of Andalusia. It divides the plateau of Meseta Central to the north from the Guadalquivir valley to the Sout.  This place has many myths about bandits and a child brought up by wolves. Mountains are not high but with a beautiful Holm Oak and Cork Oak open forest called “Dehesa”. Dehesa are a pretty good example of sustainable uses of territory.

Sierra Norte of Seville Natural Park (also known as Sierra Morena of Seville Natural Park) offer you a very nice mountain landscapes with many raptors to see. Birdwatching in this place you can see Spanish Imperial Eagle, Golden Eagle, Bonelli´s Eagle, Griffon and Black Vulture. Sierra Morena is also a good place to take a walk to look for passerines, many wintering and resident species live in the “Dehesa”. It is about 1h from Seville.

We also offer the opportunity to explore more in the east part of Sierra Morena scouting for Iberian Lynx in Jaén. Wonderful place to Mammalwatching but also for birding where superb species like Spanish Imperial Eagle, Cinereus Vulture, Golden Eagle or Blue Magpie share the Dehesa with the Lynx. The area is a very good spot for Otter as well. It is about 2h30m from Seville and we recommended to do it in at least 2 days.
