A thriving hub of avian predator life, the various eagle & raptor species co-exist in Sierra de San Pedro, Spain, facilitating stunning action shots as different sizes, species & colours fill the air.

Our Eagles of Extremadura photography holiday provides you with a week packed with hide sessions, where your photography will benefit from unique access to locations; the hides are placed strategically within the landscape to provide an optimum opportunity to photograph a stunning range of bird species. Additionally, you will have two hide sessions dedicated to the photography of the Bonelli’s Eagle, a session dedicated to Golden Eagle photography & a further session dedicated to photography of the other raptors of the estate, such as Buzzards, Red & Black Kites. Finally, one afternoon will be devoted to photography from a floating hide, & this enables intimate photos of birds on the water, however, should this not be for you, we will arrange for this to be substituted with another equally exciting hide experience.

Everything is taken care of for you so that experiencing & photographing the species & their environment is all you need to worry about.
This trip suits keen photographers with a desire to experience the magnificent wildlife that Extremadura has to offer; capturing editorial-quality images of a range of bird species to treasure for years to come. Places are highly limited to ensure the best experience for every guest, so book early to avoid disappointment.
One of the reasons that to date, NaturesLens had not featured the Bonelli’s Eagle on our photography holidays before this one was that all the locations that we found previously were “live-baited” … none of the species on the Eagles of Extremadura photography holiday is live-baited, hence NaturesLens now being happy to offer this species to our clients.
Photographable Species: azure-winged magpie, bee-eater, black vulture, bonellis eagle, common buzzard, golden eagle, griffon vulture, kestrel, lesser kestrel, red deer
