It was a 11 days long trip to Atlas Mountains, 4×4 driving, trekking…around the Massif of the Jbel Ayachi, in the Eastern most area of Atlas Mountain. This time, we saw three Lammergeiers (or Bearded vultures): one borned this year, and the other two, between two and three years old.

Road to Morocco to continue the Lammergeier conservation programme.

This time we were delighted to share the company of French biologist  Fabrice Couzin, and his four-legged friend, Isli. Fabrice has excellent knowledge of the area having lived in Morocco for over 30 years during which time he has compiled an extensive data base of Moroccan fauna and flora. Over...

During the course of the day we were able to ring some 21 Kestrel chicks from 6 nests, and a further 5 Jackdaw chicks from 3 nests in two seperate location near our base in Ubeda. Follow...

Andalucia Bird Society Field Meeting at Andujar Natural Park. 31 st March 2012

We watched two lynx: one feasting on fresh rabbit and then moving off a little way to bask in the sun. Then in the afternoon, we watched another one, obviously well-fed, lying stretched out in a shady spot. A privileged sighting over a period of about three hours! There was a Red deer carcase nearby on which two lynx had been feeding for a couple of days. Adjusting vantage point, we were able to see the carcase and the lynx...

This November, Sierra-trek and Iberus Medioambiente have carried out the XIII expedition to Morocco in search of the last remaining breeding pairs of Lammergeier in North-West Africa. After ten days exploration of the high Atlas Mountains, we were able to locate a juevenile of 4 years, in pursuit of a Golden eagle in an attempt to rob it of its prey. Important data which allows us  to confirm the presence of the species in this particular area. Eleven years on...

Rutland Bird Fair 2011

Don’t mean to drop names, but… Well here we are on the Andalusia stand with Simon King who was promoting his website “Wildlife Whisperer” – check it out. “SMALL Cat Diary” seemed to us a natural alternative, with the Iberian Lynx, a species whose size and numbers fit the bill, a candidate for a serious bit of attention.
