El Condado Vineyards
rufous bush robins and orioles
El Condado (the County) covers a wide region located southeast of the province of Huelva and limits at the north with the foothills of the mountains in the northern region of El Andévalo and at the south with the Guadalquivir Marshes in the Doñana National Park. Excellent wines are produced here, especially highlighting are its fruity young wines with its own designation of origin.
This set of pine forests, orchards, cereal fields, olive groves and vineyards in the municipalities of Rociana del Condado, Bollullos del Condado, La Palma del Condado, and Almonte make a vegetation mosaic of great beauty that attracts, especially during the spring, a good variety of birds. Birds of prey such as lesser kestrel, from the nearby colony of La Palma, montagu’s harrier, little owl and booted eagle are found here.
Other very interesting species such as bee-eater, golden oriole, Iberian magpie, hoopoe, cuckoo, great-spotted cuckoo, red-necked nightjar, rufous bush robin or ortolan bunting breed here.
Associated to this you can also visit the middle course of Tinto River that, colored by mining activities, offers spectacular scenery. The breeding colony of bee-eaters stands out here apart from other interesting species such as short-toed eagle, black-eared wheatear, blue rock thrush, red-rumped swallow, roller, rock sparrow or little swift. And also the nearby colony of lesser kestrels at La Palma del Condado.
Featured Species: montagu’s harrier, lesser kestrel, cuckoo, great-spotted cuckoo, bee-eater, black-eared wheatear, blue rock thrush, crag martin, little swift, golden oriole, rufous bush robin.

was the highlight of our visit to
Andalusia. Not only for the 100 species
of birds we saw, but also because of the

an unforgettable experience for us.”
