The Tabernas Desert is one of the most dramatic landscapes in Spain. The only semi-desert in Europe with almost a surreal, lunar quality about its ravines, dry river beds and barren slopes – all bleached by the sun. Looking for birds in the Tabernas desert is a truly unique experience. It offers the opportunity to experience and photograph some amazing scenery.
Amoladeras is part of the Cabo de Gata- Nijar reserve area with its own unique flora and fauna. It is an area of semi-desert and scrub land populated by cacti and sisal predominantly. We should see Black-bellied Sandgrouse and Stone Curlew, Short-toed and Lesser Short-toed Larks and subject to the time of year Bee-eaters, Warblers and possibly Great Spotted Cuckoo. There is also a good possibility of eagles drifting overhead including Short-toed (or Snake) Eagle. If you’re an early riser then dawn at the right time of year may just hold the chance to find Dupont’s Lark.
We should also encounter a variety of lizards and snakes.
