Coto Donana & Extremadura April 2015

This dual destination trip to two of Spain's best birding areas always proves a winner with my groups. The variety of scenic landscapes, wildlife habitats and birding locations guarantees a huge list in European standards and hard to beat anywhere else in Europe. This trip did not disappoint with sightings of displaying Bustards, mating Great Spotted Cuckoos, 22 wading birds, 20 different raptors and some spectacular, colourful species such European Bee-eater, European Roller, Eurasian Hoopoe and European Golden Oriole.
