Wildlife watching in Extremadura - real Spain as it’s been for centuries. Our classic one centre holiday is based in a delightful, rural “finca” hotel, with great food and a warm welcome. Renowned for its birds of prey we’ll be looking for five species of eagle, Black Vulture and Black-shouldered Kite, Lesser Kestrel, Montagu’s Harriers and Eagle Owl at dusk, plus displaying bustards, flocks of sandgrouse, Black Stork at their nest and lots more. Easy walks up to two miles, occasionally with some gentle climbing, which is worth the effort.
