In the western part of Doñana, around the picturesque village of El Rocío, we find a great diversity of habitats (marshes, cork oak forests, pine groves, coastal cliffs, mobile dunes…), and therefore a great diversity birds.
This is the best area of Doñana for forest birds such as the Iberian Chiffchaff and Lesser Spotted Woodpecker. Depending on water levels and time of year, it is also excellent for waterfowl such as the Red-knobbed Coot. A while observing the sea can bring species such as the Balearic Shearwater. In addition, in the nearby vineyards we can find Rufous-tailed Scrub-robin.
If you like to combine bird watching with hiking this area is excellent as there are many trails. Other possible activities in the area are Iberian Lynx watching or 4×4 tours inside the National Park. (not included in the price, ask us if you are interested).
Some of the areas that we will visit in this route are El Rocío marshes, Rocina, Acebrón, Acebuche or Doñana beach, depending on the season and your interests.
El Rocío is also an excellent starting point for our route through Northern Doñana.
