This PIO is situated in an area of dehesa where the creation of the reservoir has not diminished the ornithological interest, instead it has increased it. Although the PIO lies at the shallow end of the reservoir, the whole length of the reservoir from dam to this point will be rewarding for birdwatching. There is indeed a car park for a viewpoint on high ground, surrounded by wild pear (Pyrus bourgaeana) which offers a view across the whole water body. It is well worth stopping here first. And at the PIO we can see a pool held back by a small weir, surrounded by dehesa.
