The unknown side of Doñana

East of the Guadalquivir River mouth, in the province of Cádiz, is one of the most rewarding and least visited areas of Doñana National Park. A mosaic of fish farming and salt work facilities, along with lagoons, vineyards and pastures, creates a diverse wetland, which holds species as interesting as Marbled Teal, White-headed Ducks, Slender-billed Gulls, Whiskered Terns, Glossy Ibises, Flamingos, Spoonbills, Rufous-tailed Scrub Robins, Spectacled Warblers, Lesser Short-toed Larks, etc.

An excursion to this region in northern Cádiz makes a perfect destination for a day trip from Tarifa. Moreover, this journey can be combined perfectly with a visit to the only breeding colony of Little Swifts in Europe.
