Photographing Little Bustard: centred on the birds of the drylands of Lleida - Birdinginspain.com
A photographic trip in the drylands of Lleida especially for bird photographers keen on photographing the Little Bustard and other species of the drylands.
The relatively unknown steppes of Lleida are one of the most unique habitats in Catalonia. They are home to plants and animals which are absent or scarce elsewhere in Europe.
The trip’s target birds have all adapted well to the poorly productive and seasonal dryland environment. As such they are species which breed only in the drylands and nowhere else.
Species to photograph:
- Main species: Little Bustard Tetrax tetrax.
- Additional species: Hoopoe Upupa epops, Bee-eater Merops apiaster, Little Owl Athene noctua, Roller Coracius garrulus, Lesser Kestrel Falco naumanni, Montagu's Harrier Circus pygargus
- Other interesting birds: More than 30 species photographed from our fantastic pool hide at Montsonís
Price: Consult for prices for individuals, small groups and tour operators.
The price includes all transport during the trip, all meals, guiding, use of hides, and accommodation in a twin en-suite room. For an additional supplement you can be met at Reus or Barcelona airport
