List of local wildlife

Extremadura offers some of the most spectacular birding experiences in Europe.

In winter the region has the highest bird species richness of anywhere in Spain, thanks to the relatively mild weather and abundance of food for birds. This attracts huge numbers of birds from northern and eastern Europe: waterbirds, Common Crane, birds of prey and small birds, like finches, larks and pipits. It is also the best time of the year to see some of the resident species well, like sandgrouse, Stone Curlew and Black-winged Kite. The surprising diversity of landscapes means that in a week’s holiday different habitats can be explored each day, adding to the richness of the experience.

Spring in Extremadura offers one of the most exciting and memorable wildlife experiences in Europe. Thanks to its low human population density and still largely traditional land use, there is plenty of space for nature. Furthermore, the surprising diversity of landscapes means that in a holiday different habitats can be explored each day, open plains, dehesa, mountains, heathland, river valleys and wetlands. Depending on the spring migration, the abundance of a few of the species may vary during this period. There will also be opportunities for looking for orchids, butterflies and dragonflies
