Extremadura birding tour 2017

Our Extremadura birding tour was definately the best way to say hello to the spring and its Iberian birdlife. A 3 day tour covered wetlands, plains and, of course, the mountains and dehesas in Monfragüe National Park. The most remarkable species that we found were Spanish Imperial Eagle, Egyptian, Black and Griffon Vulture, Black and White Storks, Eagle Owl, Northern Harrier, Pin-tailed Sandgrouse, Red Kite. We could also see otter, red deer, wild boar and, of course, bulls. Not to mention the incredibly flowered landscapes of Extremadura and the rich local gastronomy… There is no doubt we will run birding tours in Extremadura from time to time.
