We currently offer tours from 2 days up to 7 day tours of Spain covering the Pyrenees Mountains, the plains of Extremadura, the wetlands at the famous Coto Donana, Alcornocales cork oak forests along the southern coast and the migration watch points at Tarifa and Gibralta. We arrange airport pick-up, all accommodation, meals and transport. We guide you to all the sites and show the birds of each habitat we visit. We have 22 years tour guiding experience with expert knowledge of western European birds. We provide a complete service for the traveling birder, relaxed, easy going and professionally led tours.

We are hosted by Bob Buckler an experienced birder with over 30 years of field craft under his belt and 22 years tour guide experience. He has traveled extensively in the UK. Spain, Morocco, France and Greece and made birding trips to parts of the USA, Canada, Israel, Egypt and the Balearic Islands. Bob offers a casual approach to bird-watching and guides with an easy going, friendly nature. You are not lectured to or confused with too much “expert” knowledge, the trips are good humored and suitable for beginners and accomplished bird-watchers alike.

Bob also currently leads tours to Lesvos, Greece, Bulgaria, Costa Rica, The Gambia, Morocco and several other destinations in Spain. He operates the business with his wife Dawn from a base in the beautiful 'white village' of Gaucin in Andalucia, Southern Spain where you can stay and enjoy the real Spain. As a freelance tour guide Bob worked for the Portland Heights Hotel, (Portland, Dorset, UK) for 10 years leading their successful weekend breaks. He has also led tours the length and breadth of Britain under the our banner and currently leads tours for Bird finders Birdwatching Holidays to Greece and Spain.

The Tours take in some breath-taking scenery and cover all of the major habitats that Spain has to offer. We should encounter the dainty Wallcreeper and the mighty Lammergeier in the Pyrenees, both 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, Andalucia. In Andalucia 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.
