Esla valley

The Picos de Europa region offers sensational possibilities for birding. We offer visits in the late spring, when the summer migrants are present. The birds we can expect to see include:

  • various Woodpeckers - Black, Iberian Green, Middle-spotted, Wryneck
  • Vultures - Bearded, Griffon, Black and Egyptian
  • Redstart, Pied Flycatcher, Marsh Tit, Red-backed Shrike, Common Rock Thrush, Dipper, Dupont's Lark

This visit aims to provide high-quality birding both in terms of challenging species and excellent views. The use of observation hides allows super-close viewing. The hide sessions will not be over-long, with birds typically showing well in roughly a 90 minute session. You will not be disappointed by this unique experience.
