Event: Members Field Meeting For March 2018 Osuna

Date: Saturday, March 17th, 2018

Meeting Point: Venta Las Vegas, Osuna. This venta has a habit of not to be open on a Saturday morning so for us coffee freaks you will have to come early and get your fix in the town of Osuna.

Time: 10:00

Leader of the day: Frank Hair

Directions to the Meeting Point: The Venta is just off the A92 (Sevilla to Antequerra) motorway at junction 80, Osuna. 37° 14’14”N 5° 07’39”

Information about the Meeting: If the number of people attending is as large as previous years I will organise you into as few cars as possible to keep the convoy to a minimum. There will be some off-road driving so we will also leave unsuitable cars at the venta.
We will first travel through farmland on dirt tracks, stopping at old farm buildings and also stopping on the tracks to look for species that favour this habitat.
We will then enter the Reserva Natural Lanteuela and visit a number of the lagunas and surrounding area. Water levels will determine those we visit. At this time of the year we may catch the Great Bustards displaying.

Accommodation:
For those of you who wish to have accommodation we have an Affiliated Member in Osuna called Hostal Fivegates -info@fivegates.es,www.fivegates.es

Clothing and Food: The weather in March is usually mild to cool so hats and scarves are in order.
You will also need a picnic lunch and plenty of liquid.

Possible birds:
Red-legged Partridge, Common Shelduck, Gadwall, Mallard, Northern Shoveler
Red-crested Pochard, Common Pochard, White-headed Duck, Little Grebe , Great Crested Grebe, Black-necked Grebe, Greater Flamingo, White Stork, Western Cattle Egret, Little Egret, Black-winged Kite, Red Kite, Black Kite, Short-toed Snake Eagle, Griffon Vulture, Western Marsh Harrier, Hen Harrier, Montagu's Harrier, Common Buzzard, Booted Eagle, Lesser Kestrel, Common Kestrel, Great Bustard, Little Bustard, Purple Swamphen, Moorhen, Eurasian Coot, Stone Curlew, Black-winged Stilt, Pied Avocet, Northern Lapwing, Common Ringed Plover, Little Ringed Plover, Kentish Plover , Black-tailed Godwit, Common Redshank, Common Sandpiper, Collared Pratincole, Black-headed Gull, Mediterranean Gull, Yellow-legged Gull, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Gull-billed Tern, Black-bellied Sandgrouse, Rock Dove, Stock Dove, Wood Pigeon, Turtle Dove, Collared Dove, Little Owl, Hoopoe, Southern Grey Shrike, Common Raven, Blue Tit, Great tit, Calandra Lark, Crested Lark, Skylark, Swallow, House Martin, Cetti's Warbler, Reed Warbler, Zitting Cisticola, Spotless Starling, Blackbird, Stonechat, House Sparrow, Spanish Sparrow, Iberian Wagtail, Grey Wagtail, Tawny Pipit, Chaffinch, Serin, Goldfinch, Linnet, Corn Bunting.
Other sites in the area for those staying overnight:
There are several other sites in the area including Luguna Dulce and the other smaller lagunas around Campillos. Further along the A92 is Fuente de Piedra is where we have our meetings in Jan.
