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, Raven, Chough, Cirl Bunting and Blue Rock Thrush.

We run this trip from April to September.   Very little walking is involved as we can access most of the birding sites by vehicle.
