The best choice for birders who arrive to Málaga Airport or even port terminal and want to add great numbers to their birdlist. The itinerary will take us to the reknown Guadalhorce river mouth just a few minutes from Málaga city centre. Just in this place an incredible mark of 250 bird species have been reported to date! But if there's something that makes it special is the White-headed duck. We will take you to the best places from where to photograph this and other birds like Flamingo, Kentish Plover, Black-winged Stilt, Kingfisher, Black-headed Gull and Booted Eagle. Spoonbill, Osprey and Audouin Gull are also present from time to time, just to name a few.

ITINERARY: We'll start the journey scouring the Río Grande, a tributary that flow into the Guadalhorce river. Then we will head to the Guadalhorce river mouth Natural Area, where we will be checking several bird hides while we enjoy easy walks along what once was an important marsh area.  This is a magnificent tour not just for waders but also sea birds.
