Day 1: Departure
We will pick you up at your hotel and make the journey to the Sierra De Maria area – a journey of about 2 hours. We recommend an early start and stopping for breakfast on the way. After arriving we will have coffee and then head out to explore the local area of mountains, forests and plains for eagles – Golden Eagle, Bonelli’s and Short-toed, vultures, warblers including Western Bonelli’s Warbler, plus Crested Tit, Cirl Bunting ,Golden Oriole, Pied Flycatcher and other birds of the high sierras.
We will stay overnight in the lovely village of Velez Blanco at one of our favourite hotels in the whole region.
After breakfast on Day Two we will spend the morning exploring new sites in the area, hoping to find any birds we might have missed the previous day. We will have lunch in the bustling town of Velez Rubio and then return to Almeria and your hotel.
Again, this area offers the opportunity for great landscape photography and interesting wildlife as well as birds.
