The Sierra Espuña Regional Park is situated right in the centre of the Spanish region of Murcia between the ancient port of Cartagena and the holy town of Caravaca de la Cruz. With over 1,000 different plant species including black pines, gall oaks & juniper its very green, but there is more to this region than flora, the place is alive with animals too! Spanish ecologists have identified 8 local types of amphibians, 17 types of reptiles & 38 mammal varieties including badgers, bobcats and Wild boars. Keeping all these land animals company, there is an even larger group of 123 bird varieties. The diversity of bird life has earnt the park a Special Protected Area (SPA) status, if you are lucky you will see amongst other things tawny owls, booted eagles and golden eagles.
