Every Thursday we offer you the oportunity to join a group bird trip to know the richness of the North part of Doñana.
Why do we select this area? for two reasons mainly: because it is very close to Seville (about 40-50 minutes driving) and because of its enormous diversity of birds, Doñana is one of the best birding places in Andalucía. For both reasons we think you will enjoy all the time. And it is not only birds, there are different and beautiful landscapes, you will visit the Iberian Lynx territory (even possible to see it if we are very lucky!) and you will have time to taste local food as well.
Groups are reduced, up to 6 people, to ensure good quality of birdwatching in Doñana. We assure the trip with a minimum 3 people.
The itinerary has been carefully studied with the best spots for birding. In the morning we will visit the pineforest. We will take a pleasant walk good for passerines like Hoopoe, Sardinian Warbler, Darfort Warbler, Subalpine Warbler, Azure-winged Magpie, Woodpeckers, and others. It is also a nice place to enjoy the original landscape and know more about the mediterranean vegetation. This area is visited by the Iberian Lynx, sometimes is possible to see drops, footprints and if we are really lucky some individuals! After lunch in a local bar (meals are not included in the price), we will move to the beginning of the marsh. Having an easy walk you will discover a wonderful wetland where is possible to watch Flamingos, Coots, several species of ducks (includind White-headed Duck), Glossy Ibis, several species of Waders, Black Kites, Booted Eagles and much more.
Walks are easy trough compacted and flat sandy ground.
Even so, there will be more or less birds depending on the day, the time of year, weather conditions, etc. If you are looking for another itinerary or a custom bird trip in Andalucía please check our routes and contact us for a private tour.
