Mountain Bird Life – Spring & Summer Trip

 

Within easy reach of Valencia are a number of mountain sierras that provide habitat for some fabulous raptors.  Favourites include the Short-toed Snake Eagle and the Egyptian Vulture.  Other species could include Golden Eagle, Alpine Swift, Chough and Blue Rock Thrush.

We run our Spring & Summer Mountain Bird Life Trip throughout April, May, June, July, August and September.  This trip involves very little walking as we can access the birding sites by vehicle.

The trip also takes us through an area of forest where can also see many passerine species including Crested Tit and Crossbill.
