A PHOTOGRAPHIC AND COLOURFUL GETAWAY IN CATALONIA!

Wildpix brings you a new photo trip: The breathtakingly beautiful Sandgrooses (two species) , two of Europe's most sought-after species, can be photographed in one of the most spectacular landscapes of Spain, the steppe of the Ebro valley.
Water is scarce in this almost desert landscape, which makes our permanently filled water points a magnet not only for sandgrooses, but also for a variety of other species: from curlew, turtledove, to shrike and many more, expect the unexpected! And it doesn't end there! You will continue your stay towards the steppes to photograph the very colorful European Roller back from Africa. then a colorful raptor: the Montagu's Harrier and you will have the opportunity to photograph the pretty little Owl.

YOUR  PROGRAM

 



DAY  1-2 SANDGROUSES
In the heart of a semi-desert landscape, in the Zaragoza region, this hide was built at ground level. Very close to a waterhole, which allows you to get pictures of the birds reflecting on the water while drinking, or as they soak their feathers to bring water back to the nest. The cabin is equipped with a two-way glass for photographing natural behavior. Morning session, then in the afternoon you will go to a hide, with a pool, to also observe other species such as the elegant Red legged Partridge, or turtledoves ...


DAY 3 EUROPEAN ROLLER
Change of scenery, towards the steppes, in the region of Lleida, to meet one of the most colorful bird species. This migratory bird nests a little later than resident species and can occupy holes in houses, in hollow spaces in trees and dry stone walls. We have installed nesting boxes to help conserve this species. This also ensures good results during photographic sessions. You will photograph early in the morning to take advantage of the best light. In the afternoon, you will go on a lhide dedicated to the Little owl.


JOUR 4. MONTAGU'S HARRIER & LITTLE OWL

The Montagu's Harrier nest in cereal fields, our hides are placed near the perches used by the male after feeding the female and the chicks in the nest. This way we are not too invasive for the species. The hide are movable, individual use, and provided with unidirectional glass to allow some lens movement, and the session will be done early in the morning for this species.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

The Athena's Owl breeds in the agricultural plains of Lleida. Our hides are located just a few meters from their favorite perches that they use before entering their nest, in tree holes or between rocks. An afternoon session will be on the program at a different site.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.
