Andalucía Birding Trip to the Sierra Pelada & Andevalo Area, Spain
This full-day Andalucía bird watching trip, that runs daily, involves an ascent to the woody hills in the west of Huelva to watch raptors, insectivorous birds and other wildlife amongst the rocks, woods and scrubland. You can aim to see a wide range of resident birds, including Griffon Vulture, Hoopoe, Blue Rock Thrush, Thekla Lark, Stonechat, Sardinian Warbler, Dartford Warbler, Azure-winged Magpie, Rock Bunting. Plus, the main colony of Black Vultures in Andalusia is located in Sierra Pelada.
El Andevalo is a large area in the centre and west of Huelva province, close to the Portugal border. It is beautiful countryside in a less populated area of this corner of Spain. As we go inland on this Andalucía bird watching trip, the landscape becomes more undulating, leading towards Sierra Pelada. On the way we visit the area of steppe land to be found in the foothills just before we get to the higher hills. Here, in the grasslands you can find a small population of Great and Little Bustards, as well as Great Spotted Cuckoo that can be seen from late winter.
