    During our Camino de Santiago spring trip we stopped three days for birding with More Than Birds guide. Great and little bustards, calandra lark and lesser kestrel in the León steppe. Bears, wild cat and black billed woodpecker in the Cantabrian mountains. Unforgottable and near home!

    We spent just one day with Manu and his colleague, but it was a wonderful, wildlife-packed experience. We started early in a tiny mountain village. We were lucky enough to find bears — a mother and two cubs — relatively quickly. We were then able to follow them across the mountain for some time, which was such a special experience. We then replenished with coffee and cake, while our guide kept spotting more wildlife, including quite a close view of a wildcat. Over the rest of the day we walked into the hills to find various birds, including a pair of golden eagles, a short-toed snake eagle and a bunch of vultures. After a late lunch and a break we headed to a different part of the range to try and find more bears. Our guides were unbelievably good at finding wildlife. We just wouldn't have stood a chance without them. They were able to find literal herds of animals we never would have seen. Their equipment is great, including plenty of scopes and binoculars and their knowledge is profound. Completely recommended!
