Bird Watching (UK) - - Bird The World -

DAY ONE: The tour be­gins early af­ter­noon at Madrid Bara­jas Air­port. Trans­fer to our ho­tel near Tru­jillo with time for some lo­cal bird­ing. We will be fly­ing in from Manch­ester Air­port our­selves and will be happy to meet up with tour par­tic­i­pants at Manch­ester Air­port so we can travel to Spain to­gether. DAY TWO – DAY FIVE: Our days will be spent bird­watch­ing in the var­ied habi­tats of Extremadura. The vast rolling steppes here will be our main des­ti­na­tion as we en­joy the amaz­ing spec­ta­cle of dis­play­ing Great Bus­tards and with luck, plenty of Lit­tle Bus­tards. These grass­lands are also home to sand­grouse, larks and rap­tors. Mag­nif­i­cent tow­er­ing cliffs pro­vide roost­ing and nest­ing sites for a large colony of Grif­fon Vul­tures and this same area is a key habi­tat for other rap­tors such as Span­ish Im­pe­rial Ea­gle, Black Vul­ture and Ea­gle Owl. In the cork oak wood­lands, we hope to see de­light­ful Azure-winged Mag­pies, Hoopoes and melodic Wood Larks dis­play­ing over­head.

DAY SIX: Morn­ing bird­ing around Tru­jillo gives us the chance to tar­get any species that we may not have caught up with yet, be­fore driv­ing to Madrid Bara­jas Air­port, ar­riv­ing mid-af­ter­noon to con­nect with our in­ter­na­tional flights home. Tour con­cludes at Madrid Bara­jas Air­port.
