Lammergeier Birdwatching Tour in Spain
This is a 5-day Lammergeier Birding Tour in Spain’s Largest Natural Park, Cazorla, Segura & Las Villas. This tour is available on request and is a relaxing-paced tour that offers some of the best wilderness landscapes in the whole Iberian Peninsula. It is here we offer the opportunity to see the Lammergeier soaring freely amongst the high sierras of Andalucía. Just a brief fact-file about flora & fauna:
The park possesses a remarkable variety of plants with 2,171 species, of which 35 are endemism’s unique to the park. 130 species of butterfly underline the extraordinary wealth of nature to be found and enjoyed in one of the most bio diversified regions in all of Europe and the birthplace of the legendary River Guadalquivir.
There are currently 25+ of the species living in the wild here, the fruit of the reintroduction project, an initiative whose origins lie in the disappearance of the species in the nineteen eighties as a historical resident in the park. The disappearance of Lammergeier Birding galvanized feelings towards the need for a heightened awareness regarding conservation, resulting in the breeding centre and other such programmes.
From May to September we’ll be able to get close up to the birds, as we have access to the centre, with the added bonus of permitted photography for those who should wish.
Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas Natural Park are the largest in Spain and second in Europe. It is located in the East of the province.
The park is also known for being the birthplace of the River Guadalquivir. Kind of paradoxically, way back in the 18th century, the Sierras was declared a maritime province, serving as it did both military and civil construction. The timbers were used in the construction of naval vessels, and the old tobacco factory in Seville is a present-day example which pays testimony to those times.
