Mountain Bird Life – Winter Trip.

 

Our Mountain Bird Life Winter Trip involves a walk amongst beautiful mountain scenery, through forested peaks and later into a spectacular gorge.  We run this trip from December to February.  We can expect to see the magnificent Griffon Vulture, always an amazing sight but especially so amongst such dramatic scenery.

The mountainous sierras of the Valencia region provide habitat for some specialist highland bird species

The mountain peaks provide wintering grounds for another fascinating bird – the Alpine Accentor.  Quality views of these wonderful birds makes the short walk well worth the effort.
