|The start of "Sendero La Teja", on the old A381 just north of Los Barrios|
|Explaining the principles of repopulation|
|Gorse, pine and cork-oak|
|November is the time of year for setas (a general term for edible wild mushrooms)|
|Climbing up the firebreak|
|Baby pines rapidly turn into ...|
|... full-grown pine trees!|
|The Alcornocales is one of the few remaining habitats of the insectivorous |
plant Drosophyllum lusitanicum. Look closely and you can see its lunch.
|Cattle need to be kept out of the repopulation zone because they eat the new growth ...|
|... but no fence can keep out the corzo, or roe deer|
|This piece of sandstone would not be out of place in an art gallery.|
Unfortunately it was too big to go in my bag.
|More setas. No idea if they are edible!|
