And looking at some groups and conversations on some social networks, the polemics have already started…. People saying that this is a rewilding and not a re introduction project etc etc… No proof that the species bred on the Iberian peninsular and more…..
It makes sense to me that they were present in the north of Spain or at the very least used this area as wintering grounds…
The article from Extremadura birding is quite useful for some history of this species in Spain.
Living the dream!
