BIRDWATCHING

One of the charms of the Palacio Viejo is that you can be having breakfast while watching a blue tit fluttering on a hedge in the garden.

Birds of passage

In summer, all kinds of birds pay us a visit, including Egyptian vultures, short-toed eagles, black kites, bee-eaters, orioles and booted eagles. They are easy to spot in search of prey, as the entie estate is their feeding ground. In winter we are visited by common and redwinged thrushe and hawfinches, not to mention the spectacular passage of the cranes.

All year round

Among the resident birds, present all year round, the birds of prey stand out. It is easy to spot griffon vultures, black vultures, red kites, owls, eagle owls, golden eagles, common kestrels and above all the most emblematic species of Spanish birdlife: the imperial eagle.
