Daimiel 3 Las Tablas de Daimiel National Park


Enjoying the spring in Las Tablas de Daimiel and more of spring as rainy as this one is a good alternative for the lovers of nature in its purest state.

It was declared National Park in 1973, Biosphere Reserve in 1981, included within the Ramsar Convention in 1982 and ZEPA zone in 1988.

Moreover, yes, the truth is that it has earned it.

However, what does Daimiel offer for such fame?

As we like the wild, we will start by mentioning the fox, or good perhaps the wild boar, although the otter is the queen of the waters and why not mention the infinity of bunnies and hares that run through their fields?

Daimiel is above all the paradise of aquatic species. We can enjoy, among others, the Great Horned Owl, an expert diver looking for vertebrates and fish; the Imperial Heron, present in all nearby fields; the ducks: The Azulon is the most abundant, the Frieze Duck in less quantity and don’t forget the emblematic Colorado Duck; The famous Common Focha, present whenever there are good levels of water and the Common Crane, easy to see at dawn and dusk to capture dreamy photos.

On birds, I would emphasize the White Stork present at the end of summer and the Black Stork before its migration; the Aguilucho Lagunero and Aguilucho Pálido that use the carrizales of cazadero and dormidero. Finally, let’s mention the swift pace of the Osprey, blessing the eyes of who can see it.

For lovers of fish abound Tents of perfect size and king of invertebrates is the river Crab with considerable economic and social importance.

Of course, Daimiel is not just wildlife. There are more than 300 types of plants. Some of the most abundant are, for example, the Alamo; The Encina; The Masiega; The Carrizo; The Enea and the mythical Taray.

Daimiel has very well prepared facilities to enter in the islands and thus to be able to see the different zones of nesting and to enjoy a fairytale walk.

It goes without saying that Daimiel’s environment has changed considerably in the last 50 years due to the economic and agricultural development of the region, but once inside the park you can savor the sweet, wild and authentic spirit that characterizes it.
