The Birds and Wildlife of the Strait of Gibraltar

Enjoy a full days quality birding around the very best sites on Andalucia's southern coast. Andalucian Guides will expertly guide you using intimate knowledge of the area. We also have up-to-date information on the whereabouts of current species, migratory and rare.

From spring flowers including Orchids, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, spiders and insects. Butterfly species are quite impressive both in beauty quantity. There are also lots of "African" plants and shrubs throughout the limestone mountains and in the massive Alcornocales Parque Natural.

If you'd like to specialise in raptors for a day tour then we'll take you to where Booted, Bonelli's and Short-toed Eagles hunt. We can visit the haunts of Black shouldered Kite, Spanish Imperial Eagle, Osprey, Bald Ibis (re-introduction/hacking programme.) Marsh or Montagu's Harrier, Peregrine Falcon, Merlin, Lesser Kestrel, with good possibilities to look out for the rarer Atlas Long-legged Buzzard and the dashing Lanner Falcon, also a visitor from Morocco.

If you would like to see an amazing variety of waders, terns and gulls then we can look for Collared Pratincoles, Green Sandpipers, Caspian Terns, Audouin's Gulls, to name but a few or all sorts of wonderful passerines, from Orphean Warblers, Rufous Bush Robin, Rock and Cirl Buntings, to Blue Rock Thrush and Tawny Pipit as well as Black-eared Wheatear and not forgetting the Little Bustard and Stone Curlews of Cadiz province!
