Martin Kelsey has led over 100 private tours in Extremadura, one of Europe’s top birding destinations, and together with his partner Claudia, run a guesthouse for birders in the heart of Extremadura. Martin has been attending the Birdfair for the last 15 years……

At this year’s Birdfair Martin will be based at the Extremadura Tourist Board stand, located Marquee 7, Stands 51/52 and will also be giving a talk on Extremadura at the Harrier Lecture Theatre on Saturday 18th August at 16.00.

Martin and Claudia are offering a £200 Birdfair discount for the Extremadura’s Winter Spectacular Tour in 2018 and 2019 booked by two people during the Birdfair 2018. For private groups of three or more, the same discount of £100 per person will apply.

Extremadura’s Winter Spectacular Tour

A private eight-day tour from November 2018 to mid-February 2019. The key attraction is the huge wintering population of Common Crane, but there is an exciting supporting cast of vast numbers of waterfowl, as well as smaller birds which draw in raptors like Hen Harrier and Merlin. A range of habitats will be explored and resident birds like bustards, sandgrouse and eagles add extra spice, as well as species like Alpine Accentor.
