STRAIT OF GIBRALTAR AND SIERRA DE ANDUJAR, ANDALUCIA
Experience the impressive autumn migration through southern Spain, and enjoy the unique wildlife of the Sierra de Andujar. During the first part of the trip we will focus on the raptor migration across the Strait of Gibraltar, whereas we will spend the second half enjoying the birds and mammals of the mountains in Sierra de Andujar.
The Strait of Gibraltar is one of the busiest migration points in Western Europe during the autumn, and millions of birds gather every year in the southern part of Spain to rest and forage before continuing their journey southwards to their African wintering grounds. The raptors constitute one of the most remarkable groups on the move during this period, and almost all the Spanish raptors can be encountered, along with several other specialities of the area. One of the Days we will go to the eastern part of Doņana National Park
Sierra de Andujar is a wonderful and relatively untouched mountain chain with large expanses of oak forests and an impressive density of large mammals. Fallow Deer, Red Deer, Spanish Ibex, Moufflon, Wild Boar, Otter, and even the rare and endangered Iberian Lynx, can all be seen here; most of them easily and at close range. Apart from the mammals, the area boasts a good population of both Black Vulture and Spanish Imperial Eagle, and we also have good chances of seeing the White-rumped Swift here.

Annette Phillips Raptor migration Andalucia - September 2008
Words alone cannot begin to describe the incredible week in Andalucia. The accommodation was of good quality and in fabulous locations. Your knowledge of the area and the birds, including your incredible ability to spot and identify so many birds whilst driving as well. From start to finish, everything was first class. As for the birds, well, the vast quantities of raptors passing overhead, excellent views of Bee-eaters, Little Swift, Bald Ibis, Squacco Heron, Black Stork, Spanish Imperial Eagle, and of course can't forget the now no longer ever elusive Hoopoe, just a few of the 43 lifers seen during the week. The only disappointment is that it had to end, but hopefully I'll be back again sometime. I cannot thank you enough and highly recommend your tours to everyone considering booking, they will exceed all expectations. Thank you again.

Hi Cristian and Iben
There is a saying; "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but the moments that take our breath away". You certainly provided many of those in Andalusia. I particularly recall watching a Goshawk repeatedly stooping at a Griffon, and Spanish Imperial Eagle stooping at Black Vulture. You came up trumps finding 6 Spanish Imps. and a Golden Eagle (both species in binoculars at the same time together with Black Vulture). The Thekla Lark, Southern Grey Shrike and Firecrest were the best views I have ever had, while the huge flocks of Black Kites and Black Storks darkening the sky were mind boggling.
Thanks again for a wonderful week, I can hardly wait for the Pyrenees.
