Catalonia Birding Tours
The Ebro delta in North East Spain is one of Europe’s premier wetland bird watching destinations. A wide variety of watery habitats can be found within > 320 square kilometres of the natural park, with diverse environments ranging from salt marshes and sand dunes to river bank and woodland. This range of habitats attracts a bewildering selection of birdlife with a species list exceeding 300 varieties!
If you want to see flocks of Flamingos, rare herons and bitterns, magnificent raptors, wonderful waders, exotic migrants, wildfowl or warblers – the Ebro Delta has it all in abundance! The sheer number and variety of birds that you will find throughout 12 months of the year make this a location which every avid birder should visit at least once – and it may leave you wanting to come back for more!
Not only is the delta a premier location for birdwatching in Spain, you will also enjoy the magnificent Mediterranean climate and sample some fantastic local gastronomy. Typical dishes based on the regionally produced rice combined with mouth-watering fresh seafood from the coast are a culinary delight which further enhance the Ebro Delta experience.
Al Henderson has been living on the Ebro delta for more than 20 years, and in 2017 made the decision to turn his passion for birding on the delta into a profession. Having spent many years here observing and photographing the birds in all different seasons, Al has an intimate knowledge of the area and the birding opportunities it offers – and now offers his services in guiding private bird tours of the region at affordable prices.
At Ebro delta birding we want you to come and experience the delta the way you want to – so we are pleased to offer birding tours in Catalonia from single day trips up to fully inclusive week-long tours, and if you are thinking of something a little bit more bespoke, just ask and we will assist in developing a custom tour that will fly!
