Andalusian Walks

Jean C Roché

Rural Andalucia is a world away from the clutter of the tourist resorts along its coast. Here a unique wildlife ekes an existence under the Mediterranean sun. As befits a hot land, the predominant wild sounds are dry and percussive, but are overlain with beautiful larks and nightingales. Many of the locations featured, such as the flamingo lake at Fuente de Piedra or the birding marvel of El Rocio, will be familiar to travellers to Spain, those who have not yet visited will undoubtedly be inspired.
