The town of Fuente de Piedra is just off of the A92 motorway junction 132, and the information centre is at the other side of the town, check out Google maps for directions.

Information about the meeting

For a change we are not having a EGM or OGM this is just a field meeting looking for the winter visitors that will be around the laguna and surrounding fields.

Accommodation in the area

Check out the ABS web site.

Clothing and food

As this is November it may be cold and wet, so warm waterproof clothing is needed. Food wise, there are local ventas in the village, or bring a packed lunch.

Possible birds

Common Crane, White-headed Duck, Little Bustard, Greater Flamingo, Stone Curlew aka Eurasian Thicknee, Jack Snipe, Hen Harrier, Merlin, Bluethroat, Reed Bunting and other interesting winter species.

Hi Frank,
Bärbl and I will be attending. We are in Germany right now but shall be staying in Chiclana for a couple weeks from Nov. 11 to 25 restoring vitamin D levels and looking for an apartment in Chiclana for an extended stay in 2018. My mobile phone number (with Germany country code) will 49 173 263-7572. I think we'll probably look for overnight accomodations in Fuente de la Piedra so we don't have to spend a couple hours on the road before the meeting.
Cheers,
Jim Wardell and Bärbl Knorr

Hi Franky

I will be attending this meeting.
At the moment the road is closed at the Fuente de Piedra roundabout as you come off the A92.It's just a small detour for the Laguna past the garage and through the square.Hopefully normal route will be reopened by the meeting date.
All the best Ron Hatch
