Ian Parsons

Vultures in Spain

Ian spent twenty years as a forest ranger working with a wide variety of wildlife, everything from dozing Dormice to predatory Goshawks. In 2012 he set up Griffon Holidays, running specialist bird tours to Extremadura in Spain and also started writing articles for Bird Watching magazine. In 2020 his book, A Vulture Landscape, was published. It is a book that celebrates the vultures and wildlife of Extremadura. His next book, Seasonality, is due out in February 2022.

Ian has spent several years living permanently in Extremadura and now splits his time between his native county of Devon in England and his beloved vulture landscape in Spain.
