The Bird Watching Club for World Travelers

Spain

You don't need to be an expert birder to contact a Pal.  Together you have love for nature, birds, new countries and learning.

These are serious birdwatchers willing to share their time to help you.  It is a privilege to contact them.  Your message should be respectful.

A Birding Pal does not charge a fee, however you should pay for their expenses, transportation costs, entrance fees, meals, etc.

Pals will answer your messages quickly, if they can.  You might select someone who is traveling, so write to more than one Pal, and be patient.  Let us know if someone doesn't answer and we'll check that everything is okay.

Let us know when you are going to meet a Pal, and then let us know how it went.

Happy birding.

I live with my husband John on a 6 acre finca in the mountains near the beautiful white village of Casares. We have a casita (small house) in which you can stay at a cost of 40 euros per night for 2 people. Then you are on site ready to birdwatch in the morning! We have Griffon Vultures, Booted and Short-toed Eagles visible from our terrace, together with Blue Rock Thrush and cheeky Sardinian Warblers. In the Spring, I can find you Bee-eaters, Woodchat Shrikes, Golden Orioles (May onwards) whilst Cetti's Warblers and Nightingales sing constantly. Occasionally an Eagle Owl can be seen at dawn or dusk. In addition I run 2 moth traps with 850+ species and wildflowers are prolific (200+sp). Tarifa and La Janda are possible as a day trip and at La Janda in the winter up to 1000 cranes are present. At breakfast, on clear mornings you can see the African coast from our terrace. Malaga is 110kms away and so I am not able to pick people up from there, but if you can get here with a hire car or take a bus to a closer spot, then I can help you!

Still have a small house in Stamford, Lincolnshire, UK to which we return at regular periods (usually for no more than a week at a time) so that I can keep an eye on my aged parents.

I have been based in southern Badajoz, Extremadura for the last 3 years, working on a long-term Montagu's Harrier Study. In the spring and summer I spend a lot of time in the field monitoring and tagging birds, and tracking them, observing their feeding habits. I also work on a project that aims to reduce the number of nests destroyed by early harvest of wheat fields each year. I work with an amazing raptor rehabilitation centre called AMUS (Accion por el mundo salvaje) which is the world leader in rehabilitating Montagu's Harrier orphaned or injured by the harvest. Steppe birds are easier to see in this area than in Caceres, and views are closer. Wild flowers and orchids are abundant, and the landscape is incredible. Visitors would also get the chance to help with the efforts on the various programs at the centre or in the field for a few days- something different from the usual birdwatching holiday.

He knows where the animals and plants of the island are. Anything that you want to see he knows where it is. He is a true local nature guide!

The other part of the team is Guillermo: He is an enthusiastic Canary Islands official tour guide. He speaks English and is also a birder. He worked four years as a birdwatching guide in Doñana National Park, and now he is working as a private guide in Gran Canaria, knowing the secrets, histories and curiosities of the island.
