A Years Birding in Extremadura: What to see and when to see it.
Home to a wealth of bird species, including the Iberian endemics of Azure-winged Magpie and Spanish Imperial Eagle, it is a not to be missed birding destination.
Unlike other bird guides, this book focuses on when to see the species that you want to see, be they wintering Common Crane, early spring Great Spotted Cuckoo, late summer White-rumped Swift or passing Osprey.
Part 1 of the book goes through each month in turn, detailing the species that are present, arriving and departing, as well as suggesting the habitats to visit and the extra special birds to look out for.
Excerpts from the author’s own diaries give a flavour of the birding to be had each month. Part 2 looks at the different habitats, recommends the best birding areas and details some of the star species to be found in this wonderful region. Ian Parsons is a wildlife writer and bird tour guide. He runs Griffon Holidays, specialising in bird tours to Extremadura.
Environmental and Nature Tourism in Extremadura, Spain.
Extremadura is Spain’s most remote region, traditionally isolated, pushed hard up against the border with Portugal and ringed with glorious mountains. However Extremadura is no longer inaccessible. New roads and a high-speed rail line (opening 2013) make Extremadura easier to reach and explore than any time in its history – and what a history!
Much of Extremadura is bountiful and plentiful. It has two of Spain’s five mighty rivers running through it, the Tajo and the Guadiana. Thousands of miles of canals irrigate millions of hectares of agricultural land. Extremadura is land-locked, but astonishingly, thanks to its innumerable lakes and embalses, it has more miles of “coast” than any other Spanish region.
It also has more water within its boundaries than any other region in the whole of Europe. Visitors to central parts will be shocked to see paddy-fields – yes, paddy-fields, with glimpses of sparkling water between brilliant green shoots of rice.
Unspoiled Extremadura also offers visitors a fabulous heritage of traditional food, crafts, music, dance and art. History lovers, painters and photographers will have endless opportunities to discover these treasures and to enjoy them to the full.
Extremaduran towns and villages lie far apart and this gives rise to the individual character of each settlement.
The people of Extremadura are very proud of their home villages and no matter how far they travel in search of work, every August will find them back ‘home’ for the holidays.
The people are genuinely open and friendly. While well aware of what is going on in the wider world, they prefer to live Life in a less complicated way. Care of the family, the village, the countryside, the traditional way of life: this is what matters to the local people.
