Nature observation outings

The company ConvientoNorte, located in Cordovilla de Aguilar, offers several outings in the north of the province. Depending on the season, these observation outings can have several themes.

Above all, be aware that we always make our observation outings with authorized 4×4 vehicles and with specialized guides.

We go out with optics for observation of fauna and flora, telescopes and binoculars at no additional cost.

 

1- Alpine Flora and Fauna (from March 1 to August 31). These outings are made inside the Palentina Mountain Natural Park and they are the most diversified.

Middle spotted woodpecker

This environment shelters many species of birds such as Bluethroat, White-capped Blackbirds, Middle Spotted Woodpeckers or Alpine Accentor.

With a bit of luck, you will also distinguish the silhouette of the Royal Eagle as well as tracks of wolves and bears, if not themselves. The forests of centenary oaks, holly trees and Sorbus are the place of life of European Wildcats, Pine Martens or Dormouses.

Moreover, all along the outing you should see many examples of alpine flora. Let’s just mention some: the Adonis Pyrenaica, the Cantabrian Artemisia or the Viola Palentina.

Orchis Cazorlensis

 

Throughout the season, we can observe in these natural spaces up to a total of 65 different cataloged species of orchids so far.

Exploring these three natural spaces allows us to go through different ecosystems with a very diverse geology, a condition conducive to the emergence of numerous species of orchids.

Some of the orchids of Palencia: Ophrys Castellana, Orchis Olbiensis, Orchis Cazorlensis or Orchis Pallens.

Within the great variety of ecosystems present in the north of the province of Palencia, we can discover and admire birds such as the Common Rock Thrush, the White-Winged Snowfinch, the Bluethroat, the Great Bustard, the Spanish Sparrow or the Royal Eagle.
