  • Keen wildlife photographers of all experience levels are invited to join David for this brand new 2022 six-night wildlife photography holiday to photograph the Golden Eagles & other birdlife of Northern Spain. You will add images to your portfolio of the wildlife of this region of Northern Spain; this photography holiday will have an itinerary packed with opportunities to capture images of some brilliant species.
    The seven-night photography holiday has an itinerary designed for photographing the birdlife of the Segovia region of Spain from a network of hides all located within 30 minutes of Cantalejo; during the trip, you will have opportunities to undertake photography from both conventional fixed installation hides & mobile hides placed for the best options as they arise.
    Overnight accommodation is in a small but friendly hotel in Cantalejo; meals will be taken in the local Tapas bar immediately opposite the hotel – food is a simple Spanish affair, tasty but not gourmet!
    You will be fortified with a light breakfast, as is the Spanish style, lunch & then, in the evening, various plates that are available in the Tapas Bar. The menu contains a myriad of dishes; some delicious standard plates available, & stews or similar.
    We will provide transport via a minibus to transport participants from the airport to Cantalejo. The group size is a minimum of 4 plus David – with a maximum of 6 plus David.
    Throughout this trip, the locations should provide opportunities for capturing images of bee-eater, buzzard, golden eagle, griffon vulture, Hoopoe, little owl, red kite & many more besides.
    The absolute star of this location is the Golden Eagle … or rather Golden Eagles! One female frequents the area, usually joined by a juvenile or her male mate.
    Join NaturesLens to capture images of the Golden Eagles & other birdlife of this region, in Spain, during the Eagles & other birdlife of Northern Spain photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 7 night/8 day duration on a Full Board, Non-Shared basis & costs £2499 per participant.
    Throughout this photography holiday, David, one of the company founders, will be on hand to guide & lead you; David will be providing assistance & advice as needed & helping you develop your skills. He will help you capture images of the varied spring birdlife with the impressive backdrop provided by the mountainous landscape.
    Highlights of the trip include capturing images of the beautiful birdlife of this region of Spain, photos which you should be able to add to your portfolio include a wide variety of birds, including kites, vultures & buzzards at the scavenger hide, Hoopoe at its dedicated hide, bee-eaters at their hides, little owls, and a variety of smaller birds. Oh, & that rather magnificent eagle, of course. All the details are taken care of for you so that you can relax & enjoy this brand new wildlife photography adventure.
    Our group numbers are strictly limited to allow for the highest quality experience for everyone involved, & as this photography is seasonal, we can only offer this trip to a small number of lucky individuals each year. Book early to avoid disappointment!

    Recommended Equipment

    Recommended Camera Equipment

    For this photography trip, we would recommend that you have available, an array of lenses from an intermediate telephoto lens such as the 100-400mm, which is extremely versatile, through to your longest lens, whether that is a 400mm, 500mm or 600mm. A wide angle would also be useful if you fancy capturing some birds in the environment shots.

    If you own a lens with an aperture of f/2.8 within the recommended focal length, bring it! These will allow you to focus on your subject faster & will also be useful in low light conditions.

    You should also pack a tripod to help steady your lens, especially when you are out photographing at dawn & dusk.

    Recommended Clothing

    For this photography holiday, the weather can be changeable so we would recommend that you pack layers of thin fleeces or mid shirts & jumpers since you can remove items of clothing as you start to warm up. You don't need to bring camouflage clothes but please do pack neutral coloured clothes so that you blend into the landscape. You should also bring a warm waterproof coat & waterproof trousers in case it rains, so you are covered for all eventualities.

    Silk gloves or a thin pair of thermal gloves with rubber grip on the fingers & palm will help to keep your hands warm. Silk gloves are great for wicking away moisture from your hands, leaving them dry & therefore lovely & warm. Gloves where the fingers are cut away so that you can operate your camera with them on would be a good substitute.

    Don't forget to pack sensible waterproof walking boots & a warm hat to protect your head.
