Flamingos at El Portil Nature Reserve

Throughout the whole area virtually all electric pylons have stork nests on them. (The electricity boards build the pylons with a special stand for the storks.) It is an amazing sight to see them when they are nesting and bringing up their young.
The Laguna de El Portil Nature Reserve is a 13-hectare reserve of a small freshwater lagoon with three bird hides. Rich in birds; on the lake are grebes, kingfishers, spoonbills, plovers, grey herons and mallard ducks, while in the woods there are woodpeckers, hoopoes, greenfinches, chaffinches and buzzards. There are many amphibians and reptiles here including tortoises, frogs, toads, speckled newts and chameleons.

Doñana National Park

This area is considered the most important wetland in Europe and one of the best places for birds in the whole of the Palaearctic region, both for the number of species recorded and for its breeding and wintering importance. Between 300,000 and 400,000 birds settle in Doñana every winter. More than 300 species of birds have been recorded in Doñana, being the most important area in Europe for wintering geese and the second most important breeding area for Spanish Imperial Eagle in the world. Hundreds of birds including raptors, passerines, and sea or wetland birds are seen here, including 80% of all endemic Iberian birds, which are not as easy to see outside the area.
The best time to go "birding" is from November to June. If you are lucky you may even glimpse the shy Iberian lynx.
