Iberia Lynx 23rd to 27th January 2010 Summery

We where based at the Apartments Los Pinos

in the Si8erra de Andujar we had a apartment witch consisted of 3 bed rooms a sitting area and a small kitchenette this was very useful as we could do our own breakfast and packed lunch as and when we wanted to. This was a ideal base as we where only ½ hour drive from the good spot for Iberian Lynx

Places we visited where as follows

El Escorial (lynx watching and birds of Prey)
The dam at Jandula reservoir (this is where we were looking for the wall creeper but with no luck)
The river Jandula (this used to be the spot for watching Lynx) also a good spot for Otter which we did not see
The church at Santuario Virgen de la Cabeza
where my sister had a look around (she said it is well worth a visit)
Area Between the bridge at the river Jandula and the apartment complex
fuente de piedre
Guadalhorce Nature Reserve
