As Spain transitions to a New Normal, we have teamed up with superb rural eco-lodge Huerta Grande to bring you this short, affordable birding getaway in The Straits of Gibraltar.  What better place to fly away for a three-day break and enjoy your new-found freedom in the wide-open spaces of the natural world?

The Strait is an ideal destination for summer birding, and not just for the cooling sea breezes and plentiful ice-cream!  It is also home to interesting and unusual resident and breeding birds, some of which occur nowhere else in Spain.  Rüppell´s Vulture, Spanish Imperial Eagle, Common Bulbul, Rufous-tailed Scrub-robin and White-rumped Swift are not only stunning to see but high on many birding wishlists.  

A great variety of coastal, mountain and wetland areas put us in contact with some of the area´s most engaging species.  Gorgeous Greater Flamingoes, characterful Northern Bald Ibis, awesome Griffon Vultures and rainbow-coloured European Bee-eaters make this an ideal area to kick-start your birding habit and make birding your New Normal!  We can even loan you a pair of high-quality binoculars if this is your first foray into the bird-watching world.

With its ever-changing weather and winds, and fascinating birds cropping up in all sorts of unexpected places outside of any formal nature reserve network, this can be a tricky place for independent birders.  It also holds many hidden avian treasures and permit-only areas, best explored with a knowledgeable local guide.
