The Park of Kings

By Linda Tancs

Doñana National Park in Spain is a significant European nature reserve.  Easily accessible from Cádiz, the oldest city in western Europe, it has seen its share of kings over the centuries:  Philip IV, Philip V and Alfonso XIII hunted there.  These days a host of threatened bird species needn’t worry about the sport of kings.  The park’s lagoons, marshlands, dunes, scrub woodland and maquis provide restful cover for five threatened bird species as well as for one of the largest heronries in the Mediterranean region.
