Laguna de la Fuente de Piedra

We left Granada two days ago and drove towards Ronda. Since we had some time before we could check in at our next hotel, we decided to stop at Laguna de la Fuente de Piedra to see if there were any flamingos. The flamingos come to the lake to lay their eggs in early spring. By the summer time they either will fly to Africa or to other parts of Spain as the lake will usually dry up. The flamingos like this lake because it is shallow salt water. They like to be located in about a half meter of water.

We were lucky as there were a lot of flamingos there. However, it is very hard to get a good view of them. The area is protected and unless you take a guided tour, you have to view them from pretty far away. The lake is supposed to be a good area for bird watching as there are a lot of other species that live in the area.

You can see the flamingos much better in the video, but it was hard to hold the camera still.
