Event: Members Field Meeting For Feb 2016  Osuna

Date: Saturday, Feb 20, 2016

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 you 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 last year 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 Feb 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.

All set to be with you and we will be joined by our latest members, Peter and Janet Ratcliffe from Villanueva de la Concepcion.  I believe they may stay over on the Friday to make sure they are with us on time so may well arrive before me!  Please keep an eye open for another set of "strangers" joining us for the first time.

Hi Frank and Other Members

Rosario and Me will be there, probably with some other friends.

The forecast weather will be sunny but cold, for sure could be a great day to watch the most expected birds of the Osuna's steppes, Great Bustard and Sandgrousse, that had been seen in last weeks.

Regarding breakfast there are so many places in Osuna to taste typical Churros, Tortas de Aceite. Aldeanas or Tostadas con Aceite from local producers, Cafetería Tetuan is a good choice, in Calle Carrera, beside Fivegates Hostel. If you are a coffe lover, you have the chance to taste the different varieties of coffe by the hand of Mr Chava, Barista and Micro-Roaster.

Caf. Tetuan:  37°14'23.73"N,   5° 6'17.99"O C/ Carrera in front of C/ San Pedro.
Mr Chava: 37°14'2.07"N, 5° 5'43.53"O, Beside Osuna's Hospital.

Please Frank, the email address that appear in your post about Fivegates is not working properly, if someone of you need to contact with Fivegates please you should use next email address and phone number, cincopuertas@gmail.com, 626 620 717 / 955 820 877. If you need further information please check in Fivegates webpage, www.fivegates.es, where you will find address and location coordinates.

We are so excited to see you again in Osuna.

Salud,

Rosario and Manel
