Sightings during a couple of recent trips to this remarkable mountain area of the eastern Sierra Morena, including the critically endangered Iberian Lynx, Spanish Imperial Eagle, Eurasian Black Vulture, Black-shouldered Kite and Black Wheatear amongst plenty of others. The La Mancha lakes en route were rich in birds too, including White-headed Duck and, surprisingly for December, Whiskered Terns!

SOS Playa de los Lances. Despite records of a number of rare migrant birds on the beach this autumn, the site is terribly disturbed, and Godfried Schreuer has emailed a number of authorities to convey his dismay over its condition.
