Overview

Reserva Natural Laguna del Conde o El Salobral. 27/01/06; Andalucía; 345 ha; 37°34'N 004°12'W. Nature Reserve, EU Directive Special Protection Area, Site of Community Importance, Andalucian Wetland. Of particular importance as feeding, breeding and nesting place for waterbirds, the value of the fauna in this wetland has the white-headed duck (Oxyura leucocephala) as its emblem, for it used to have its last European population in this area. In order to ensure its permanence, measures have been taken to eliminate the Ruddy duck (Oxyura jamaicensis), an invasive species believed to constitute a major factor in the decrease of white-headed duck populations. Ramsar site no. 1683. Most recent RIS information: 2006.
