About this book

Planning a birding trip to Extremadura? Then you need this book. Extremadura in Central Spain is one of the best birding destinations in Europe. 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, A Years Birding in Extremadura 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 A Years Birding in Extremadura 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.
