CUEVAS del Almanzora was the place to be for bird fanciers last week, hosting the 23rd Andalucia Ornithology Championship.
Organised by the Valle del Almanzora Ornithology Association with the collaboration of the municipal council, the event ran from November 9 to 18, and attracted hundreds of bird enthusiasts from all over the area.
Cuevas Mayor Antonio Fernandez Liria, along with the Andalucia regional government Tourism and Culture delegate Alfredo Valdivia, Sports councillor Miriam Quintana and Valle del Almanzora Ornithology Association President Antonio Sánchez, were among the first to visit the event.
The Mayor praised the association for its “great work and the effort it has been making for years to protect and show the great variety of species which exist.”
Antonio Sanchez commented that the association had been particularly looking forward to this edition of the event, describing it as a “complete success”.
