Wolves,Cranes and Great Bustards.

Wolves, Cranes and Great Bustards.



A great weekend with 3 wolves seen here in the Sierra de la Culebra and a short drive to Villafafila to see the arrival of the wintering cranes, plus the resident Great Bustards.

 Also saw a magnificent Golden Eagle along with thousands of wintering wildfowl and a fantastic display of aerobatics by a male Peregrine Falcon stooping unsuccessfully into a flock of Lapwings,but showing its mastery of the air. Good numbers of Marsh Harriers quartering the lagoons and upwards of 30 Red Kites. Here in Culebra as well as the wolves, we watched a fabulous 16 point Red Stag with a harem of hinds and a Golden Eagle hunting low over the valley at la pista.

 Wonderful in every season!
