I’m going to Barcelona for a conference next month, with a week of travel in France beforehand, and I’m hoping to add some mammal-watching to my trip. Most successful trip reports are from other times of year, but that might be because of the heat rather than the chances of seeing mammals. I have a couple questions:
- Is it possible to see Alpine Chamois near Grenoble in July? Any tips on where to search for them?
- Is Iberian Lynx get-able in the summertime? Is Sierra de Andujar the best site?
- Is there anywhere where I’d have a decent chance to spotlight Pyrenean Desman?
When I purchased my flight, I was hoping to do a separate mammal-watching trip to South America or Borneo, and didn’t budget time for mammal-watching in Europe. I realized this week that that just won’t be possible, so I’m debating changing my return flight from Spain.
