Why it’s interesting? We will walk through the lagoon of the Dehesa de Abajo enjoying with all the senses this paradise for birds. We will later enter the area of pine forests located in the northern area of the natural park of Doñana, where unique species find their best refuge. A short tour around a lagoon where many of Doñana’s birds take refuge.
What is the itinerary? We will stop off at the visitor center of Dehesa de Abajo where there will be an introduction to the world of birds and we will carry out observation activities that will allow us to enjoy the world of birds. Later we will walk attentively among pine trees, before having the the possibility of listening to some other species present here: genets, meloncillos (mongoose), kites, eagles, and even the well-known Iberian lynx … hide among this vegetation. We will analyze why the pine trees are the dominant trees in these areas, and the use that humans have made of this vegetation over time.
