    Eleonora's Falcons of Sardinia - £1099 per participant

    £1099 per participant - 6 places available.
  • Join NaturesLens, for the Eleonora’s Falcons of Sardinia photography holiday, alongside our guide, Alan & Javier. You will find that Sardinia in September offers unique photographic opportunities with the unusually small Eleonora’s Falcon that, despite its size, bears the name of one of the most powerful & important judges of Sardinia, & Sardinia’s most famous heroine.
    Eleonora d’Arborea fought against the King of Aragon for the independence of her island, Sardinia, &, while she governed – at the end of the fourteenth century & the beginning of the fifteenth century – she enacted various protective regulations for raptors in the face of the activities of falconers, traffickers & merchants.
    In honour of such an outstanding pioneer of bird conservation, this sea hawk was named after the last ruler of the island.
    Join NaturesLens to capture images of Falcons of Sardinia, in Italy, during the Eleonora’s Falcons of Sardinia photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 4 night/5 day duration on a Half Board, Non-Shared basis & costs £1099 per participant.
    The marine cliffs of Sardinia harbour one of the largest breeding populations of this small hawk. Since they can only be seen in this part of the continent, it is one of the best places in the world to photograph this species. Our photography holiday is timed to coincide with the mating & nesting season of Eleonora’s Falcon, which occurs at the same time as the autumnal migration of thousands of passerine birds, which form a large part of the diet of the tiny falcon.

    Here in single or two-person hides, you will photograph this beautiful bird of prey in the reserve that the Lega Italiana Protezione Uccelli has on this small island. LIPU, the Lega Italiana Protezione Uccelli is an Italian charitable organisation, founded in 1965 & devoted to the protection of the country’s wildlife with a particular focus on birds.
    More than 200 pairs of Eleonora’s Falcon nest in the impressive limestone cliffs. Their desire to revisit the cliffs where they hatched makes this area one of the most critical sites for Eleonora’s Falcon. It is also one of the most accessible locations where you can photograph the birds without causing them any distress.
    Each day, we will have the assistance of a member of the Lega Italiana Protezione Uccelli, who will show us the best places to photograph this beautiful raptor.
    If time permits, we may photograph the Falcons drinking & bathing in a small trough that will be built for its use, getting almost unseen footage of this species.
