Birding in Doñana National Park, Andalucía, Spain
This is a 1-day Birdwatching in Doñana Trip available daily and at a leisurely pace, although with an early start. Birding will begin in the wetlands in the east of the region of Doñana, continue along the Guadiamar River valley and then culminate inside the famous Doñana National Park where we can enjoy a picnic lunch. We then continue birding in Doñana until sunset, taking in the fascinating wildlife that inhabits this unique environment between the plains of southern Spain and the Atlantic Ocean. Your guide will arrange for you to see the most interesting species for the particular season of your visit.
All in all, this day trip covers a wide range of ecosystems and a great variety of birds, both resident and migratory. Expect to enjoy Marbled Duck, Black Kite, Rufous-tailed Scrub Robin, Spanish Sparrow, Pin-tailed Sandgrouse, Whiskered Tern and Savi's Warbler, among the many other species to add to your list.
Birdwatching in Doñana takes you to a natural waterfowl paradise and an area of high biodiversity for other key European species. Coastal sand dunes gives way to scrubland, Mediterranean forests and lush wetlands inhabited not only by a myriad array of birds but also Wild Boar, Red and Fallow Deer, Egyptian Mongoose and even the chance of Iberian Lynx.
Taking part in birding in Doñana also contributes to the conservation of important native bird species, such as Imperial Eagle and a captive breeding programme for Iberian Lynx.
Birdwatching in Doñana Trip highlights include:
- A visit to one of the largest wetland complexes in western Europe
- Bird migration between Europe and Africa in spring and autumn
- Views of some of southern Spain's most iconic species
