A Golden Eagle calls to announce its presence photographed at the locations used for the NaturesLens Spanish Birds of the Castilian Plains photography holiday
Spring in Spain; surely the birds most synonymous with the region are the Great Bustards, who put on fabulous displays at their lek sites in an attempt to compete for the attention of the females of the species. These birds, coupled with the Bonelli’s, Golden & Imperial eagles make this photography holiday from NaturesLens ‘a must’ for those wishing to fill their portfolio with some of the best-known & most impressive Birds of Spain.
Sunrise & sunset are considered the prime times of day for creative photography, therefore, we ensure that our photography sessions make the most of these times of the day. This provides unrivalled exposure to the variety of species which inhabit this region.
