This part of Andalucía is a hugely important route for birds migrating between Africa and Europe. In spring on a Westerly there is an incredible concentration of eagles and raptors of all sorts that soar over Almuña on their way northward. These are joined by exotic birds from Africa such a Beeaters, Golden Orioles and Shrikes.
We shall be exploring coastal, inland and mountain sites with our ornithologist. This will include farmland around Almuña, the sierras of Ronda, the Coto Doñana where the Imperial Eagle thrives, the salt marshes along the Guadalquivir River, Atlantic beaches and the Straits of Gibraltar.
