SPAIN - The South
We have travelled to Spain on many occasions over the last 41 years visiting many different areas.
We now have a tour based upon seeing one of the country's most endangered mammals, the Iberian Lynx.
Our tour leader is Cristian Jensen, who has been guiding groups to see these fascinating small cats for a number of years.
Our two-centred tour will be a combined birding and mammal holiday, with a special focus on seeing the Iberian Lynx in the wild.
In January, Lynx are at their most active during the daytime as they seek a mate before becoming nocturnal in the hotter months. We shall visit areas where these cats can be viewed from strategic vantage points; being a feline in the wild it can not be 100% guaranteed but chances are high.
The birdlife in this area of rolling mountains and hills is also interesting with Spanish Imperial Eagle, Eurasian Griffon Vultures and Hawfinch often in view.
The famous Coto Doñana will give us some great winter birding with thousands of wildfowl present, as well as egrets, herons and birds of prey.
Species anticipated on this trip include Red-crested Pochard, Red-knobbed Coot, Marbled Teal, Whiteheaded Duck, Golden and Spanish Imperial Eagles, Great Spotted Cuckoo, Iberian Green Woodpecker, Blue Rock Thrush, Dartford Warbler, Firecrest, Crested Tit and Cirl Bunting.
We can also enjoy the mild winter sunshine of southern Spain and visit these two contrasting areas at a relaxed pace.
