BBC Wildlife Tour - Part 2: Fuente de Piedra Lake

We have enjoyed a lot of birds of our inland lakes, like Greater Flamingo, White-headed Duck, Great Crested and Black-necked Grebes, Red-crested Pochard and different species of resident and on passage waders, as well as steppe birds like Stone Curlew and Lesser Kestrel, and other animals like snakes and dragonflies.
