Llobregat Delta Birding Trip, Catalonia, Spain
Barcelona, the dynamic and cosmopolitan capital city of Catalonia, has been a magnet for all kind of people all over the world. Its history, culture, architecture, and street life have attracted tens of millions of tourists in the last decades. Catalans have been always regarded as an open-minded, liberal country. The geographical situation of this land, a natural corridor between the Iberian Peninsula and the rest of Europe, has made that all nations crossing the Pyrenees have chosen these lands for that journey, and all of them have left some of their influence. Barcelona, as the main city and harbour of the country, has concentrated this multicultural, open-minded ambient for centuries.

Whether if you are a keen birdwatcher or an occasional birder, Llobregat Delta Birding Trip is the perfect break to experience the chance of a wonderful birding day exploring habitats far away from home...
One day Llobregat Delta birding trip. This tiny wetland immediately South of Barcelona is simply amazing! From the end of August to June provides an extremely rich variety of birds including Moustached Warbler, Little Bittern, Western Swamphen and Ortolan Bunting. In spring, day lists of over 100 bird species are effortlessly achieved. Don't expect a concentration of large flocks of shorebirds or waterfowl. For instance, we will enjoy a holly variety of birdlife, including an excellent number of Mediterranean and Iberian specialities!
But please don't think we will just explore the natural reserves. In fact, during the day we will visit a number of locations that will vary depending on the seasons to catch up with the best of the nesting birds around (we can enjoy from Common Rock Thrush to Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, from Ortolan Bunting to Thekla Lark and Little Bittern), and the many migratory birds that use this patch of Catalan coast to rest during their migrations. All of this makes of Llobregat Delta Birding Trips a guarantee for enjoying the birdlife and the town!
