Cranes, Lammergeiers & Wallcreepers

SPAIN-Aragona&Catalunia

Spain in the colder months can be magical as this time of the year sees the gathering of thousands of Common Cranes at their single most important stopover site in Western Europe.


These birds breed in the swamps and marshes of Scandinavia, Finland and Russia. Some stop over on their annual migration, which will take them between their breeding grounds and the dehesa of Extremadura, while others will stay around Gallocanta to benefit from the sae' haven provided by the lagoon and the food available in the surrounding fields. We shall be treated to one of the world's great spectacles as these birds fly in large flocks overhead, trumpeting as they go.


Spain can also offer some other superb specialities in the colder months, as Wallcreepers descend from their high mountain breeding areas to winter at lower levels. Spain's mountains can also tempt us with Bonelli's Eagle, Lammergeier, Alpine Accentor and Citril Finch.


Moreover, this itinerary has other surprises in store, as we visit the grasslands and plains to spot both Little and Great Bustards and Black Wheatear, and the Ebro Delta for Audouin's and Slender-billed Gulls, Glossy Ibis, Greater Flamingo, Bluethroat and many other wetland species.


We stay at three very comfortable and well-located hotels. This tour is packed with some great birds and some little visited locations and our local guide Steve West will make sure you have a memorable and bird-filled holiday, so why not visit Catalonia and Aragon and enjoy Spain in the winter.
