Countryside Birding Half-day Trip in Andalucía, Spain

half-day countryside bird watching trip in the area between Huelva City and Niebla to look for small birds and raptors. This is an unhurried journey inland through southern Spain's wheat and sunflower fields and wood-pastures. These rural locations are ideal for finding Calandra and Crested Larks, Stonechats, Sardinian and Dartford Warblers.

And the presence of farmland rodents as well as small birds inevitably attracts a good selection of birds of prey. You can expect to find Marsh Harriers, Black-shouldered Kites and Little Owls year-round on this countryside bird watching trip. These are augmented by Lesser Kestrels, Booted Eagles and Short-toed Eagles in summertime and Hen Harriers in winter.

A half-day birding trip in the Andalucian countryside is sufficient to give you a real flavour of the many birds that inhabit and pass through this area. It is also a stopping-off place for migrants in the season, with Redstart, Whinchat, Willow Warbler and Northern Wheatear putting in an appearance.

The town of Niebla is a special inclusion in this countryside bird watching trip because its ancient castle, town houses and boundary wall provide a home for a large colony of Lesser Kestrels that come here to breed.

If you like the look of this birdwatching option but you're also keen to have a look at other types of Spanish birds, have a look at the Northern Doñana Birding Trip, Spain.
