ANDALUCIA is promoting itself as a birdwatcher’s paradise after tourism chiefs travelled to the UK to highlight what the region has to offer, The Olive Press reports. The delegation attended the British Birdwatching Fair in Rutland, the largest of its kind in the world and often described as the birdwatchers’ Glastonbury.

Representatives from the Junta joined birdwatching companies at the fair to highlight Andalucia’s main areas for twitching and the key species visitors can expect to see.
Andalucia boasts around 150 natural protected areas totalling 3.3 million acres, more than 60 Special Protection Areas for birds which together are home to over 300 species of birds.

Estepona Sun Kisses Presenter’s Cheek with Warm, Spotlight Embrace!

With the sun casting its radiant, daily spotlight overhead, Estepona rolls out its golden sands as a welcome mat, beckoning “A Place in the Sun” celeb, Jasmine Harman, and her delightful troop - husband and kiddos included - into its warm embrace for a delightful act titled: New Beginnings. Jasmine, no stranger to the tantalizing dance between dwellings and dreamers with her two-decade waltz on Channel 4, has been the fairy god-presenter, sprinkling home-finding magic dust from Portugal to Malta to Cyprus. Yet, after years of orchestrating homey happily-ever-afters, she’s chosen to pen her own, right in the heart of sun-soaked Estepona. “It was a canvas of years in the painting,” Jasmine confided in Hello! Magazine with a smile akin to one indulging in a delightful secret. “With each year gently nudging us towards craving more moments stitched together with family laughter and wrapped in quality time. And thus, with a dash of courage and a sprinkle of adventure, our decision bloomed, o

"Spain and England's World Cup Waltz: The Pinnacle Plays of the Pitch!"

 "La Roja and the Lionesses set for a Down Under Duel in Sydney! Prepare for a football fiesta as Spain's La Roja squares off against England's Lionesses at the iconic Stadium Australia this sunny Sunday, 20 August. The stakes? Just the little matter of the Women's World Cup title. For both teams, it's uncharted territory. They've danced around the finals before, but never quite made it to the last tango. Spain's road to the finals was nothing short of a nail-biter. With a thrilling 2-1 victory over Sweden, where the scoreboard remained dormant until the last 10 minutes, La Roja proved they love a little late-game drama. As for the Lionesses, they showed their mettle by taming the co-hosts, Australia, with a captivating 3-1 win. Now, with the world watching, both squads are on the prowl, each looking to pounce and claim their first-ever Women's World Cup crown. May the best team win (and the fans get to enjoy some fantastic football)!"

Marbella's Shoreline Set for a 'Sand-sational' Upgrade!

With a 'can-do' spirit that would make a sand castle builder proud, the Marbella town hall is steering a beach revitalisation project right off the pages of a fairy tale. Like a magnificent sand migration, the process kicked off at Las Chapas-Alicate and will sweep through Casablanca, La Fontanilla, and San Pedro Alcántara.  Mayor Ángeles Muñoz let slip that a mountainous 120,000 cubic metres of sand would be borrowed from the town hall’s own treasure chest to finance this sandy renaissance. "The central government seems content playing in the shallow end, leaving us to dive deep for a definitive coastline stabilisation solution," Mayor Muñoz said, clearly not one to bury her head in the sand. In a stroke of midnight genius, the work is taking place under the cloak of darkness - from midnight until 8am - sparing sun-seekers and local business the sight of bulldozers invading their tranquil beaches. Mayor Muñoz confessed that the project couldn't have hit the groun
