Wonderful Spainish Birding In Extremadura Join Us April 2018

Great Bustard adj

The Great Bustard is a magnificent bird of the Spainish plains.

Just a short flight and a short drive away lies Extremadura in Spain a land of big skies, wide open spaces, rolling plains and teaming with wonderful birds! We have been visiting this empty region of Spain for many years and love it! There are so many birds, carpets of wildflowers, superb food and great hotels, a perfect comination for a Birdwatching Trip. We would love you to join us in Extremadura in April, we have two tours this year, one guided by both of us and the second one guided by Iolo Williams, yes him off the telly, and Alan. Both tours will enjoy the fantastic birds and wildlife of this beautiful part of Spain and we know you would love the experience of seeing bustards, sandgrouse, larks, vultures, eagles, falcons, warblers and so much more in the warm Spring sunshine.
