Spring into Spain with us
With the UK freezing and under a blanket of snow there is no better time to book a trip! Join us in the stunning scenery of flower filled Extremadura in March 2013. We are running a wonderful five day break to this bird rich region, timed to see the amazing displays of Great Bustards on the rolling plains.
Of course we will be looking for lots of other great birds, Little Bustards will be blowing raspberries from the grasslands, Azure winged Magpies in the pines, both Pin-tailed and Black-bellied Sandgrouse will be on the plains beneath singing Calandra Larks where Hoopoes and Great spotted Cuckoos are arriving.
Here are just a few images from previous trips to this amazing area only a few hours from Madrid Airport. We will be again using the local expert to help us find the very best birds so we know you will love this trip.
The scenery is as good as the amazing birds!
Lovely Azure-winged Magpies are high on the wanted list
We may even see them around our lovely hotel
Remember when Corn Buntings were common? They are here!
White Storks will be nesting building
We will explore neaby wetlands, Spoonbills could be here

The rock where the Griffon Vultures live
Shrikes will be a feature, here a Southern grey Shrike
