Laguna de las Pedreras


The “Laguna de Pedreras” is an artificial lake in a former aggregate extraction quarry. This lake is particularly striking as numerous bird species pass and rest here, owing to its proximity to important wetlands such as the Fuente de Piedra lagoon, the Lantejuela Endorheic Complex and the Gosque Nature Reserve in Osuna.

Among the bird species that can be watched are stilt, cattle egret, common coot, mallard, common moorhen, grey heron, grebe, plover, lesser kestrel, lapwing, wagtail, European bee-eater and, occasionally, flamingo. The lake’s perimeter vegetation is composed of rushes, reed, and bulrush.
