Seville Countryside Birding Daytrip

This area offers a very rich diversity of birds, gathering typical birds from steppe with some other waterfowl in close proximity. Some of the most distinguished species are Great Bustard, Little Bustard, Black Shouldered Kite, Black-bellied Sandgrouse, European Roller and the White-headed Duck.

Osuna´s countryside and the brackish lagoons of La Lentejuela are located in the East of Seville county, between Écija and Osuna. The area is plain and rolling occupied mostly by cereal and olive groves.

There are plenty of seasonal lakes, the most distinguished being La Ballestera and Calderón Chica.Of special interest is the  Gobierno´s lake because of the artificial water irrigation which does not drain in the summer time.
