September arrives to announce the bellowing of the deer and mushrooms to the arcornocales forests of the Sierra de Grazalema. These two events are an important attraction to attract the attention of visitors to this area of Andalusia.
The deer bellow
The bellowing, is the period in which the male deer is in heat and emits a series of sounds to which the exciting antler fight to get a female joins, the males are hit with the horns trying to unbalance the opposite. When one of them succeeds, the defeated will withdraw immediately or restart the fight.
At the end of September with the first rains of autumn this fantastic spectacle begins, one of the most shocking that can be seen in the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park in Cádiz.
The bellowing begins with the bellows and continues for several days with the battle in which their antlers collide until exhausted. The sound envelops the heart of the park and its echoes are heard in an environment of several kilometers, especially at dawn and also when the afternoon falls.
From Tambor del llano we have the privilege of hearing the sounds of the bellow.
This natural phenomenon lasts about a month, usually begins in September - according to the weather and lasts well into the month of October or November.
