I've been living and birding in and around Lleida, Spain, for the last 18 years. And that's something you notice, as I haven't just touched down and set up shop, using "where to find..." guide to tell me where the birds are, in fact, I've written one such a guide myself.
Since 1996 I have organized, led or co-led bird tours around northeast Spain, Extremadura and the Canary Islands for bird tour companies from the UK, Holland, Switzerland, Canada and the USA. I am fluent in both Spanish and Catalan.
My travels in the region during this time have yielded their rewards in the form of a comprehensive knowledge of the places worth seeing and the birds that inhabit them. What birds and where, but also when, how and how often!
If you planning a birding trip to northeast Spain then the cheapest option would be at your own pace and leisure. However, some people have limited time and need to make the most of it. That is where a local guide comes in – a good guide is not only an excellent birder who knows where and when to find the key species you can expect, but also a birder capable of delivering the unexpected due to his keen knowledge of bird songs and calls and his sharp vision which can lead to exciting encounters that may well have been missed.
