After a winter that will be remembered as the wettest in Spain for the past 51 years – according to rainfall data recorded by the Spanish Meteorological Agency AEMET – spring has broken into Western Iberia. These heavy rains have managed to increase water reserves compared to the same dates last year.
Ponds full of water, rivulets and rivers filled have all turned the West Iberian landscape into a painting with lots of colors, synonymous of high biodiversity.
These water reserves are the best guarantee of large areas with rich and biodiverse green roofs, to the delight of the wildlife in the Western Iberian habitat. Wild herbivores are the first to benefit. Retuerta and garrano horses, sayaguesa and maronesa cows, roe deer and the rest of herbivory welcome spring in the Western Iberian peninsula.
