J-15. Along the Banks of the Guadalquivir

  • Totally signposted.
  • Binoculars. A telescope would also come in handy.
  • River and riversides
  • Wetland vegetation
  • Olive groves
  • Spring-summer (April to September). Worth a look at any time of year.
  • Any, though the early or last hours of the day are preferable.
In the western part of Sierra Morena de Jaén the River Guadalquivir winds back and forth through the final southern foothills. Beside Marmolejo the waters have been backed up by a small dam, giving a foothold to wetland vegetation along the muddy banks. At different times of year this is home to Purple Swamphen, Little Bittern, Purple Heron, Water Rail, Little-Ringed Plover, Gadwall and Shoveler. Birds that might drop in on passage include Marsh Harrier, Night Heron or Squacco Heron. Along the banks blooms the eyecatching Yellow Flag. More information on this trail in the book Birding and Nature Trails in Sierra Morena de Jaén.
