Spain september 2021

Hi everyone. I’m going on a buisness trip to Spain on th 10’th to the 17’th of September 2021 with my boss. It will be quite intensive and i will drive a lot but there will be time for some hours spent in the field. We wil start out in Malaga and drive to Ronda upon arriving. After sleeping and spending a couple oh hours there we’ll drive on to Sierra Andujar and spend the rest of the day  there staying overnight at “La Caracola” and stay in the area till aproximatly midday looking for Iberian Lynx and other exciting mammals, does anyone have tips for Iberian hare in the area? After Sierra Andujar we’ll continue to Extremadura and stay therefor a couple of days before driving to the Western Pyrenees staying in Alquezar and finally driving to Flix were we’ll have a day befor going to Barcelona and back to Denmark.

Any tips on interesting mammals are much apreciated.

      Thank you so much Palani

      Yes we will drive a lot i a limited time, but thats part of the job. I will be back later with more time. 🙂

      I saw the first one earlier. I would love to see Mongoose and Iberian hare this time. And lynx of course.

      I made a nine day trip a couple of yeas ago and saw lynx, Wolf and Bear plus some other mammals and birds. Do you know about Wildcat in spain outside Picos?

    Interesting Mattia! Taking notes wild cat is one of my favorites in europe.
    Exhausting itinary. Does your boss know you are planning not to sleep at the mammal sites 😀 or is he into it?
    We saw Iberian Hare crossing the road at night just west of los escoriales on the road to la lancha. A decade ago 😉
    In Extremadura I really enjoyed the Embalse de Talavan. In 2011 this water body was great for otter, in 2017 no otter but many southern water vole!
    Area is good for birds too.

      Thank you Maurice.
      He knows i’m crazy, thats why he hired me. He even equipped me with a Ledlenser MT18 😉
      The trip is part of a scouting trip for a travel agency trying to come up with new destinations and trips. My boss will do the driving, so ill take a nap during the long hauls. 😀
