Hola!!!!

So the long winter has probably kicked in by this time of the year and you are experiencing the dreaded birders lull!  The excitement of a new bird year list has faded, you have connected with all the winter stuff but the Spring migrants are not quite at our shores…. well why not greet then early and head with us to Southern Spain for a quick blast of sunshine, and some stunning birds to boot.

Arriving at the fantastic Tryp Hotel in Guadalmar (close to Malaga airport)  Monday 16 April 2018 relax with a stroll along the promenade or if warm enough enjoy a dip in the hotels beautiful  swimming pool, get some rest though as the next four days are full on Birding! The tour end with the group meal on the Friday evening,20 April 2018 with check out from Hotel and Saturday Morning.

Staying on a half board basis lunches and refreshments are also taken care of in the total cost of the trip, lunches are taken in typical Spanish cafes and Bars, far from tourist locations and giving the full flavour of this beautiful part of Spain and a plentiful supply of water and nibbles are held in the minibus for you to help yourself to as and when you need.

So why not treat yourself to a fantastic sunshine and bird break, a great way to shake off the winter blues!  All this fun in the sun for £1390 per person!  But be quick as we only have three spaces left (maximum of six victims clients)

See http://birdingecosse.co.uk/spain-2018/ for full details and more detailed information and what is included/not included.

Adios Amigos 🙂
