Birding the Torcal de Antequera, Andalucía, Spain

Birding the Torcal de Antequera, Andalucia, Spain.

Birding the Torcal de Antequera, at just 45 min from Malaga airport, is always a rewarding experience and the best scenery to combine rocky birds, plants and general wildlife for those based in the Costa del Sol. We are proud to have guided the first birdwatching journey organized by the Torcal de Antequera visitor centre.

We were a bit of a big crew -17 members-, but the birds showed up really well, including the very elusive Blue Rock Thrush and a beautiful male of Black-eared Wheatear.

We love to run birding tours in The Torcal de Antequera, where wrens and nightingales are the best background music while walking among Hawthorn blooms.
