SPAIN - ANDALUSIA - JAÉN
Sierra de Andújar Natural Park
Cuencas del Rumblar, Guadalén y Guadalmena SAC
In this activity we will make a guided tour in 4x4 by expert local guides, to observe, listen and photograph the Berrea del Ciervo at sunset in Sierra Morena de Jaén.
We will know the habitat of the Iberian Deer, its ecology and its behavior, and we will make several stops in strategic places to look for them with optical material (binoculars and telescope).
The Sierra de Andújar is, due to its extensive hunting tradition, one of the best places in Spain to enjoy this natural phenomenon that begins during the month of September.
We start the day in the afternoon, looking for the different species that this corner of Sierra Morena offers us. In the vicinity of the Natural Park Sierra de Andújar, we can observe relatively easily different species of wildlife, especially deer, fallow deer or mouflon.
Dehesas of holm oaks, cork oaks, pyruétanos, heather, jaras, madroños, lentiscos, or different aromatic plants typical of the Mediterranean mountain, among an infinite maze of granite "bowling" will accompany us all the way, giving us an overview of the soft and characteristic landscape from Sierra Morena.
The activity is carried out in small groups (in private outings or shared with other visitors, contact us).
Of course, observing without filling the stomach is complicated, so we include a snack-dinner of local products to taste in the field at dusk.
