  Lets hope we have better whether that last year.

Date:
Saturday, May 18th, 2019

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.

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.


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
