Bob currently leads tours to Australia, Oman, Sri Lanka, Lesvos, Greece, Bulgaria, Costa Rica, Guyana, The Gambia, Hungary, Morocco and several other destinations in Spain. He operates the business with his wife Dawn from two bases. For late Spring, summer and autumn the base is in the beautiful 'white village' of Gaucin in Andalusia, Southern Spain where you can stay and enjoy the real Spain, its beautiful scenery and the terrific bird-life.

He has also led tours the length and breadth of Britain under our company's banner and led tours for Bird finders Birdwatching Holidays to Greece and Spain for a number of years.
The Tours take in some breath-taking scenery and cover all of the major habitats that Europe has to offer. We should encounter the dainty Wallcreeper and the mighty Lammergeier in the Pyrenees, also in the Picos de Europa you will see the Alpine Accentor, Snow Finch and Citril Finch all very sought after species. The steppe near Madrid host's the Dupont's Lark, the most sought after bird in Spain and one on our list of hopefuls. In the plains we find the Sandgrouse and Bustards with a supporting cast of many raptors. Southern migration hotspots in the spring can produce many thousands of raptors at any one time and a visit to the areas around Tarifa during April can be very rewarding.
Millions of shore birds and passerines also pass through on their way from the African continent to the north-western regions of the Palearctic, often stopping off in the Donana National Park. We lead regular bird-watching tours to Coto Donana especially in the Spring and Autumn. Our local destinations include Ronda, Andalusia. In Andalusia up to 20 Warblers may be seen along with, Storks, Herons, Egrets, Terns, Larks, Pipits, Swallows, Swifts, Martins, Tits and Buntings. A splash of color is added with Hoopoe, Golden Oriole, Roller, Shrikes, Serin and Kingfisher. By joining a your or a short-break you will amass a huge tally, enjoy the fantastic scenery and sample the true Spain.
