A mighty Griffon Vulture just of the 22 species of raptors we enjoyed!



We are back at base in Llandudno, North Wales after a wonderful time leading two tours in Spain and enjoying fantastic birds, stunning scenery, superb hotels, delicious food and a great variety of weather! With over 200 species of birds enjoyed, the vast majority were seen on the second tour alone, it was an incredibly enjoyable time for our guests who just loved it. So many hihjlights from Griffon and Cinereous Vultures at point blank range, magnificent Spanish Imperial Eagles, huge Great Bustards in full "foam-bath" display, Little Bustards strutting the plains, gorgeous Pin-tailed and Black-bellied Sandgrouse, so many Iberian Magpies all in Extremadura alone!

We enjoyed White Storks every single day in Spain and marvelled at their huge nests.



From Extremadura we headed south to the famous Coto Donana National Park where we stayed at a beautiful hotel overlooking a bird filled lagoon - paradise. Hundreds of Collared Pratincoles and Greater Flamingoes make their home here along with so many more wonderful birds such as Whiskered Terns, Black-crowned Night Herons, Red-crested Pochard and Spanish Imperial Eagles. We exploered this fantastic National Park and surrounding area watching masses of waders including Kentish Plover, Wood Sandpiper, Pied Avocet and Whimbrel along with gorgeous pink Slender-billed Gulls, huge Caspian Terns, stunning Black-necked Grebes and super rare Red-knobbed Coots.

We then moved further south to Tarifa opposite Morocco and we had stunning views of Africa from our beautiful hotel. It was fantastic to see birds arriving from Africa especially the huge numbers of European Bee-eaters - rainbow birds - always a delight to encounter. So much more here with bonkers Northern Blad Ibis both at their nests and feeding in the fields, more waders including Curlew Sandpipers, more terns including Gull-billed Terns and lots more Greater Flamingoes and alomost our last bird of the second tour - White-headed Duck what an amazing bird. We enjoyed nearly 200 species on the second "Wild Spain" custom tour for two and would love to put together a tour perfect for you and also have group set departure tours availible please just drop us a line for details...
