A heatwave is currently trying to fool wildlife that winter is over. Near record temperatures in C and N Spain have brought the biological spring suddenly to life, with numerous butterflies on the wing and early-returning migrant birds.

This part covers a few of the notable birds and butterflies seen, such as Spanish Imperial Eagle, Great Bustard, Eagle-owl, Provence Hairstreak & Spanish Marbled White.

A new less intensive and still highly successful version of the previous tour. An average of just one bear watch a day, mostly at dawn, resulted in a fine observation of a big black male on our very first attempt during a very difficult year! A wealth of other sightings included Southern Chamois, 3 Wallcreepers, Western Spectre and 61 species of butterflies, such as the endemic Spanish Argus and Chapman's Ringlet.

A strongly reworked, much less intensive and highly successful version of the previous tour. At a gentler pace we made just one bear watch a day, all but one of these at dawn, resulting in a remarkable final tally of 11 different Brown Bears! A wealth of other sightings included Wild Cat, Southern Chamois, Alpine Accentor and 57 species of butterflies, such as the endemic Chapman's Ringlet.

On many a birder's wish list, the Canary Islands are a superb destination. Its combination of endemic bird and other species, plus excellent opportunities of seeing pelagic species from onboard large and stable vessels, this logistically complex trip combining visits to four islands ran even better than hoped!
