The article offers information on a study that assessed the seroprevalence of West Nile virus (WNV) in wild birds and horses from the Guadalquivir marshes in Doñana National Park in Spain. The authors conducted a surveillance of the evolution of the seroprevalence to WNV in the long term. Conducted between 2005 and 2008, the serological surveillance discovered a sharp decline in neutralising antibodies to WNV in the population of feral horses in the national park.
