co-exist in Sierra de San Pedro, Spain, facilitating stunning action shots as different sizes, species & colours fill the air. From the splendid Bonelli’s Eagle
to the diminutive lesser kestrels

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.

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
, black vulture
, bonellis eagle
, common buzzard
, golden eagle
, griffon vulture
, lesser kestrel
, red deer
