Coto Donana & Extremadura April 2013

We spent 8 superb days in some of the best habitat that Spain has to offer, the weather was glorious throughout except for one day of windy conditions near the end of the trip. Birding highlights included:  Spanish Imperial Eagle, Great Bustards (displaying), Red-knobbed Coot, Marbled Duck, Wryneck, Lesser-spotted Woodpecker and thousands of birds at Donana. Our star bird of the trip was a Broad-billed Sandpiper found by us at the Marismas de O’Diel Salt Pans where we also saw a whole host of waders, gulls, terns and Pratincoles. Overall we logged 198 species a very good effort from the group and a testament of how good Spain is as a birding location during the spring.
