Northern Spain Winter Birding Tour
Our 8-day Winter Wonders Birding Tour of Northern Spain is a full week birding itinerary which runs from the beginning of November through to the end of February. We will be going in search of some of Spain's most sought after species, and taking in some magnificent birding spectacles along the way. This winter birding tour begins on the Ebro Delta where we will spend a day enjoying the best of the wetland's resident bird-life and pay close attention to locating rare winter visitors such as Bluethroat, Moustached Warbler and Booted Eagle.
The second leg of this winter birding trip sees us depart to Gallocanta in the dry-land plains to the south of Zaragoza, where we will spend 2 days birding around the famous Laguna. Alongside a huge wintering population of Common Cranes, we can also target Great & Little Bustard and enjoy sightings of raptors like Hen Harrier and Golden Eagle.
For the final leg of the tour we depart for Alquezar in the pre-Pyrenean region of the Sierra de Gaura. Dubbed 'the land of the Lammergeier', we will be searching for this rarest of vultures, along with another popular birding target, the beautiful but elusive Wallcreeper, which comes down from the high Pyrenees to over winter at lower altitudes on the cliffs and canyons of the Gaura.
