Pizarro irrigated lands
We are surrounded by irrigated areas created by the Plan Badajoz, towards its eastern edge. The Orellana Canal which supplies water to this zone is very close to the PIO. It is an intensively cultivated zone, mainly of rice, maize, tomatoes and fruit. It is the rice and maize which provides the birding interest, especially in winter, where a great variety of species can be found in the stubble fields. The selected point is random, given that with agricultural activities there will cause some variation in the best places to watch from year to year. It is the overall area that is of great interest.
From Miajadas: we take the road to Casa de Miajadas and after passing through the village continue in the direction of Puebla de Alcollarín (EX-354). Having crossed the Alcollarín River, after 650 metres we take the track to the left. From here the PIO is about six kilometres, through interesting habitat.
