Tour itinerary

Day 1: Meeting, Sierra Morena and Extremadura

We will meet in Sevilla in the morning (around 11 am) and drive till our base (around 3h +  stops) for the Extremadura leg of the tour. We'll allow some time for nice birding en route in Extremadura. We will stop at Mérida's roman bridge to try and see Golden Orioles and a variety of songbirds.

We'll get to our hotel in Trujillo with time enough to unpack and relax before dinner at its historical main square.



This tour takes place in a fantastic moment to see all possible breeding birds. Scheduled at the very best moment for a Doñana and Extremadura birding holidays. Displaying Great Bustards in lek possible, alongside Rollers, Purple Herons, Bee-eaters and a pletorah of iberian birdlife. Stepic birds are another of the tour highlights, with chances to see both Sandgrouses and a variety of Larks. The raptor community will also be well represented and the tour will provide excellent photography opportunities of some of them. Around 140 bird species expected.


Otter, Red Fox and Red and Fallow Deers will be possible. Only slim chances to see Iberian Lynx.


The landscape should be at its best moment in terms of wildflowers. We'll visit good examples of mediterranean forests, dehesas and bushlands.

What trippers say

Five stars to our guide Alvaro, who is not only a great birding guide, but a great organiser, patient driver, fun companion and all round great guy. On the first day of our tour, we discovered that 2 of our 4 fellow guests were on their 3rd tour with Alvaro. That says a lot - we also hope one day to be repeat visitors!
