Locations certain species of mammals wanted France, Spain and Austria
Sorry, I only have old sites described in my trip reports:
Iberian Ibex – sierras above Grazalema, Andalusia, Spain, e.g. Sendero del Pinsapar (which also has the largest stands of Spanish fir) but the trails are subject to restrictions – check ahead and if necessary book a permit.
Iberian Lynx – without doubt the best place is above Embalse del Jándula, Sierra de Andujar, Andalusia, Spain, especially along the JF-5004. There are numerous reports on mammalwatching with precise details of the best spots and recommended accommodation.
Most people se the Iberian Lynx at Sierra de Andujar. There, Iberian Ibex occur conveniently around the the huge Embalse del Jandula dam. I saw them crossing the stream below the dam. I also saw Garden Dormouse at night driving randomly in the area. Other people saw genets there, too, but not me.
