Its driving visitors to our website with some of the videos now approaching 10,000 views!… Anything connected to the wildlife, history, culture or landscapes of Spain can be published and, of course, includes a link to your project. 360 degree views, waterfalls, walking, nature, cycling, anything :)…..Just drop us a line and we’ll get it published. Did you see the amazing footage by Sue Eatock of the mantis eating the lizard? (almost 1000 views in just a couple of weeks!)

Wildside Holidays continues to grow in traffic and content and we are always happy to accept articles and observations about your “neck of the woods”. Any articles or images will of course be credited to, and linked to your project. Take a look at the wildlife, protected areas and natural parks published. Maybe you can add an image or a comment?. Easy to find by region in the right column. (Just scroll on a mobile 🙂 ) Or, types of wildlife in the top menu.

It would be fantastic if you could spread the word and share Wildside Holidays with your friends and family via twitter, facebook or whatever social media you use…. Linking to or your information page would be greatly appreciated! (Look in the left column for your project and don’t forget to tell us if anything needs changing!).

The Iberia Nature Forum

Finally some welcome rain and cooler weather has arrived and the Iberia Nature Forum, as always, has some great topics for reading and learning about the nature of Spain. Why not give facebook and twitter a rest for a while and join in with a quiet place without algorithms and advertising? 🙂 You can be sure that the topic you were looking at last week will still be easy to find next week!

Some fantastic news for black vultures in Spain

If you haven’t seen the video, then really you should have a look at these fantastic dolphins and the people who study them.

The usual dopey and under researched press in recent weeks states that the extinct bucardo is back in ordesa… Ummm, no!

And, the absolutely fantastic footage taken by Sue Eatock of the “Mantis eating a lizard”. The first time that this has been filmed (in Spain) and, in the wild, not captivity.
