Spain – Andalucia

In the Spring of 2014 I spent a week in northern Andalucia hoping to photograph Black Vultures and, with luck, a variety of other raptors including the Spanish Imperial Eagle. I watched the latter at distance but was unable to get any worthwhile photographs of this magnificent bird. However I did manage to enjoy vultures at close range as well as watching other species which are not normally found in the UK.


The area covered included the Andujar National Park ( home of the Iberian Lynx ), the Sierra Madrona and the Sierra Magina. This beautiful part of Spain is largely undiscovered by tourism and is full of interesting wildlife. I hope to return in the near future.
