The River Guadiato is one of the prime wildlife sites in Sierra Morena Cordobesa. Here, in its lowest reaches, it ploughs a deep furrow through pinewoods and crags, home to Eagle Owl, Bonelli鈥檚 Eagle, Blue Rock Thrush, Red-Rumped Swallow, Crag Martin, Rock Bunting, Cirl Bunting and Kingfisher. The first stop on this trail is a natural vantage point over this rugged terrain, while the second lookout point is the well-known bridge Puente de Los Boquerones, the area bedecked in spring by the photogenic yellow flowers of Narcissus jonquilla. More information in the book Birding and Nature Trails in Sierra Morena Cordobesa.
