Birding in Andalucia,Spain
African spring bird migration - April 2018
Our professional birding guides will show you an amazing variety of bird species as they migrate from Africa to Europe, stopping in southern Spain along the way.
This tour will focus on two main areas along the Andalucía coast. The first area lies on either side of Huelva, not far from the Portugal border. The area around Doñana National Park is renowned for its bird population, as are the Odiel Marshes, which lie just north and west from Huelva.
The tour will also focus on the Tarifa area, the extreme southwest point of Spain. Here one finds the Straits of Gibraltar, where Africa lies less than 8 miles across the channel that connects the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. This is an important crossing point for raptors migrating between Europe and Africa, as there is no comparable crossing until one moves all the way east to Turkey. Many other species also use this migration route.
We team with Wild Doñana to bring you the top, professional guides in Western Spain and the local knowledge to ensure you get the most of this spring migration from Africa.
