Virtual birding in Salamanca, Spain’s Wild West by Vega Bermejo
Salamanca? Most people associate the province with history, ham and the rearing of huge black bulls amongst the Holm oaks, or language schools and one of Europe’s oldest universities…
But did you know that the province harbours a wealth of bird life in stunning and varied habitats as diverse as Alpine peaks and meadows, rolling cereal steppe-lands, forests of chestnut and arbutus, huge areas of Holm oak open woodland or Mediterranean maqui, interrupted by impressive gorges and canyons which harbour cliff dwelling raptors such as Egyptian and Griffon vulture, Golden and Bonelli’s eagle?
Or that you can see Alpine accentor up close or watch thousands of Cranes fly in to roost as the sun sets?
Birding in Spain’s Wild West invites you on a virtual tour to enjoy just a few of our best loved avian friends…
This recording will be available on Friday 21st August and for 3 months afterwards.
