The Company for Quality Birding Holidays
Spanish Nature are different from other Companies offering birding Holidays on the following important points:
High quality and comfort of accommodation, food, transport and all other aspects of the tour are as important to us as the birding itself.
We provide alternative programs. Spanish Nature understands that when a couple travel together, sometimes one has less interest in the actual birding and prefers to enjoy other aspects of the visited holiday destination.
Travelling together as friends, this is our philosophy, because we want to enjoy the tour as much as you and we also want to be an integral part of the group.
Our birding guides are of an extremely high standard, maybe this is not necessary to say, but of course we want to assure you, that you will really see all possible birds.

Eleonora's Falcon along the Rio Cacín.
Our guide Brenda Jones gives an account of late June in our mountains. June in the Serranía de Ronda can be a month of contrasts. The landscape underwent its normal changes in colour going from vibrant greens, interspersed with dazzling patchworks of multi coloured flowering plants, to dry and crisp hues of browns and beige. Harvest of the cereal crops was well underway and a hush had descended upon the normally vociferous male birds of our mountains. Standing water attracts insect and bird to quench a thirst induced by warmer days. It is a time of year when you can feel the urgency in nature to procreate and take full advantage during a time of plenty….
A great days birding and a look at some of the Dragonflies in Andalucia. Our guide Mick Richardson reports on one of his day tours in Granada Province. For many people Granada Province evokes thoughts of the snow capped mountains of Sierra Nevada and of course the famous historical wonder that is the Alhambra, but the province is vast and ranges from wide agricultural plains to the hills of the Alpujarras and to the Alpine screes and rocks of Spain’s highest mountains Sierra Nevada. Nature provides a feast for those who are willing to explore this beautiful area and where better to begin than with Mick Richardson…
Busman’s Holiday? Two of our tour guides, both based in Spain, take timeout during a quiet time in an otherwise hectic schedule. So what do Mick Richardson and Peter Jones get up to when they get a moment to themselves? They go off together, accompanied by their wives, on a mission to see how many butterfly species they can find and spend a day in the higher mountain regions of the Serranía de Ronda! Mick gives an account of their day in this report and also Peter gives us a brief glimpse into his ringing/banding experiences. Here Peter shares a tale of his most recent trip to Fuente de Piedra ringing/banding Greater Flamingo Pheonicopterus roseus……
Cold, wet, hot and sticky! Our senior guide Peter Jones gives his take on wildlfe during June for the Serranía de Ronda. Ronda and its surrounding mountains, woodlands and rivers are among the most important areas for wildlife in Andalusia. Not just a place to visit for wildlife, the Serranía is scenically stunning with the famous white villages attracting tourists from all over the world. Bonelli's Eagle and Black Wheatear as resident birds are perhaps iconic for this region, but the diversity of the birdlife will provide enduring memories to those who visit. Ibex, Mongoose, Genet and many other mammals, plus over 2000 species of plant merely serve to underline the regions importance and the many reasons why you should come visit...
