At a glance
Spain is without a doubt the best European country for birdwatching. It acts as an avian bridge between Europe and Africa, with a unique combination of fantastic resident species complemented by many migrating species in spring and autumn that travel between their overwintering grounds in Africa and their breeding grounds in northern Europe. This, along with varied habitats and a wide range of microclimates in a relatively small surface area, has led to almost 650 different species having been recorded for the country. Furthermore Spain offers safe and easy birding, beautiful scenery (semi-arid steppes, alpine Pyrenees, marshes, wetlands and more), brilliant tourism infrastructure, photogenic Romanesque architecture and superb food and wine.
