This 10.5 km long route takes us to a colony of breeding lesser Kestrels and their feeding grounds.
This route has a total length of 10.5 km.
- ROUTE DESCRIPTION:
It starts at the Information Point and Environmental Education Centre. From here, we enter the village and head for the church. Here we can watch their aerial manoeuvres as they swoop around and fly into and out of their nesting holes in the church walls. The route continues along streets, roads and tracks. It encircles the municipality passing through crops, grazing pastures and uncultivated land.
An information board about the Lesser Kestrel colony SPA is located at the church. The route is not signposted, but offers no chance of error.
Avoid the periods of strongest sunlight.
