This is a full day tour to two of Almeria’s most special and unique locations.  The focus of the day will be looking for Almeria’s most iconic bird, Trumpeter Finch in the Tabernas Desert. We also have a good chance of finding Bonelli’s and Golden Eagles, Black Wheatear, Dartford and Sardinian Warblers, Black Redstart, Stone Curlew and Iberian Grey Shrike.

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.
