The most beautiful bird of prey photography in Northern Spain

 

FACE TO FACE WITH THE RARE BEARDED VULTURE AND OTHER POWERFUL BIRDS OF PREY

 

In Catalonia, Northern Spain, we offer you the opportunity to photograph just about all the most impressive birds of prey in Europe. Seeing the super rare Bearded Vulture land in front of your photo cabin is absolutely fantastic. In addition, dozens of griffon vultures, vultures of the monk and vultures of the vultures are fighting each other. Between the Red and Black Kites that fly by...In short, the ultimate falconry sensation. Flying images and the birds sitting quietly, you can see and photograph it all very well. As always from perfect and professional photo huts and with expert English speaking guides.

 

We offer this trip in a fixed formula of 4 days, of which 3 days in fixed photo huts for each different species, and 1 extra day where you can choose between a previously built hut to try again or an extra hut for a new species. The choice may depend on the weather or the species present at the time.

 

This gives you the biggest choice and the best chance of getting the best images.
 

The surroundings

 

We are in Northern Spain, in the Catalonia region, just above Barcelona. The region is located at the foot of the Spanish Pyrenees, ideal terrain for birds of prey. The region includes extensive grasslands and arable lands as well as light mountain peaks that herald the beginning of the Pyrenees, the natural habitat for vultures.

Since many years, several colonies of Vale Vultures have chosen their place here. They often land in large numbers in front of the huts and that alone with their wingspan of about 3m is quite an experience. Sometimes they reach a few meters from the hut and can observe them so close is really unique. With some luck there is also a Monk vulture and Egyptian vulture.

 

Red kite, black kite and harrier are migratory birds and only regular guests from spring to autumn.

 

But especially the super rare Bearded Vulture chooses this place to hunt. This bird has a very difficult life in Europe and survives only through intensive protection measures. Luckily they have an effect on this spot and can be seen regularly in front of the photo

cabin. Of course that is no guarantee, it remains a very shy and rare appearance but with some luck it often succeeds.

 

 

This should be about the most beautiful bird of prey on our planet. Seeing him the first time is really an experience. Usually he comes when all the other vultures have left the place. Its silhouette, flight and color are unmistakable. And if you can view it through camera or binoculars it is simply WAUW! What a drawing and head he has, as if drawn by an artist.

 

Really beautiful...and then the printing is blown for your most beautiful shot!
