Enjoy an unforgettable Birding day around Barcelona (Delta del Llobregat Nature Reserve and Garraf NP):
By combining short walks with journeys by vehicle we will discover a whole series of Iberian bird species while walking beside sheer cliffs, through wetlands dotted with colourful yellow irises, around the edge of a field of cereals or coming upon lonely coves with the captivating blue of the sea as a backdrop. Catalonia is an exceptional place for birding enthusiasts thanks to its privileged geographical position. As many as 395 species of birds have been spotted in Catalonia, of which 232 breed here and 206 winter here regularly. Moreover, it is the only region in Europe where the four species of vulture can be seen practically in the same place! It boasts a richness in bird population which is unmatched anywhere else in Europe.
The bird watching trip is tailored to suit you, in terms of target species (flamingo, bee-eater) for observation and habitats (wetlands, Mediterranean shrub) We'll focus our birding tour in 2 nature reserves (Delta del Llobregat and Garraf NP) which are close to Barcelona. Delta del Llobregat hosts a tapestry of brackish lagoons, freshwater ponds, the coast and the river bank. Garraf NP is dominated by shrubland and limestone cliffs so that it's a paradise for very unique bird species.
