Sightings during a couple of recent trips to this remarkable mountain area of the eastern Sierra Morena, including the critically endangered Iberian Lynx, Spanish Imperial Eagle, Eurasian Black Vulture, Black-shouldered Kite and Black Wheatear amongst plenty of others. The La Mancha lakes en route were rich in birds too, including White-headed Duck and, surprisingly for December, Whiskered Terns!
