An area of grassland, scrub and agricultural land located in north-east Tenerife, bordered by a residential area and the airport.
The only site for Calandrella rufescens rufescens in the Canaries and the best area on Tenerife for grassland species. The site is also a wintering and stop-over site for herons, waders and passerines and a feeding site for species that breed nearby (mainly raptors and passerines).
Pressure/threats to key biodiversity
Plans exist for the construction of an industrial area and a road that will traverse the site. Additional threats are posed by illegal hunting, and bird strikes on nearby roads. Monitoring of Calandrella rufescens is undertaken by local ornithologists.
