Laguna de Fuente de Piedra

Rich with shadows, a walkway on Laguna de Fuente de Piedra, a wetland located in Málaga province of Spain. The shallow lagoon, covering an area of 13 square kilometres is fed by underwater springs that pass through mineral salt deposits, so the lagoon is saline.

For the ornithologically inclined, it hosts the largest colony on the Iberian Peninsula of the greater flamingo and is also an important nesting zone for gull-billed tern and slender billed gull, common shelduck, common goose, red-crested pochard, purple swamp hen and crane.

Also to be found are kites, storks, marsh harriers, ospreys, a good reason for the lagoon to be declared a Nature Reserve.
