Lantejuela Natural Reserve

Sierras Subbéticas Natural Park
 

Overview
The Lantejuela Natural Reserve consists of two saltwater lakes: Laguna de Calderón and Laguna de la Lantejuela located East of Seville.  They provide an important feeding area for migrating birds.  The best time to visit is outside of summer as they can dry out in times of drought.

Animals/Birds
The lakes are home to many different waterfowl species including mallards, gadwalls, wigeons and red-crested pochards.  Black-tailed godwits, dunlins and redshanks among others are regularly seen here during migration periods as well as the occasional white-headed duck.  

Plants
The predominant lake vegetation is rushes, reeds, tamarisk and salicornias.
