BIRDING IN RONDA

The mighty limestone mountains, its rolling hills and flourished valleys near Ronda and Grazalema offer a great many different wildlife watching possibilities for you. Famous for raptors, it is also home to a great variety of mountain birds and an important migration stopover for many birds bound to Northern Europe and Africa. Not in many places like this we can enjoy the omnipresent shape of a Griffon Vulture flying up a cliff, interrupted by the delightful sound of the Alpine Swifts along the gorges. More experienced birders will be delighted by watching of our 2 Rock-Thrushes and our 3 Wheatears, not to mention our most appreciated among our three main eagles: the elusive Bonelli's Eagle.

ITINERARY: This is a private day tour and we will meet at your accomodation in the Ronda area or another previosuly agreed point. Then, we will visit the best of the many birding hotspots in the Ronda mountains, depending on your target species, weather conditions and time of the year.  We will enjoy a traditional meal at a local café nearby and then make a final birding session after lunch. A standard tour schedule is from 10:00 to 16:00, but we can generally be flexible and include some stopovers, check scenic views and natural jewels may you be particularly interested in.
