We think Extremadura is an extraordinary and fascinating place and would hope to share some of our enthusiasm for the region with its birds, natural history and also its human history.

Who Our trips are designed for birders who have a broad interest in birds and their ecology rather than for for the twitcher whose main motivation is the accumulation of ticks. 

What for Apart from the wonderful range of birds - see Species - the region has vast and beautiful open spaces unique in Europe, the best Roman monuments in Spain, excellent food and wine, and friendly and hospitable people.

How The pace of the visits is "busy but gentle"! We want you to savour good views of the birds and aim to give you a high-quality experience. We only work around here and know the area very well.

When Spring (Feb - May) is the most popular time but autumn and winter can be excellent too - see the section When to visit

Where The area we work in covers a large area of Extremadura. It includes La Serena steppe - the last remaining steppe in Western Europe with its unique ecology, the Villuercas mountains, the irrigated wetland area of Vegas Altas, the Almorallin reservoir, Monfragüe National Park, Mérida with its Roman bridge over the Guadiana, Alange with its 5 species of Swift, Arrocampo reservoir and the Sierra de Gredos mountains.
