Original Title: Presencia de halcón sacre Falco cherrug en el sur de Iberia durante el último pleniglacial

This appearance constitutes the first occurrence outside its current geographical range, and this is a new evidence that supports the Iberian Peninsula as a refuge during the whole of the Pleistocene -even during the coldest phases-. A considerable part of Iberia kept Mediterranean conditions and received northern and eastern avian species during the cold pulses.
