  • Join Victoria for this five-day trip which will take place in the Catalonia region in north-east Spain & will focus on that region’s most emblematic species, the Bearded Vultures (Lammergeier) & Golden Eagle.
    You will have the opportunity to photograph Lammergeiers feeding on the ground & in flight, with the spectacular mountains of the Pre-Pyrenees as your backdrop. The Lammergeier is a rare & magnificent bird that is in decline throughout most of its ancient European habitats. The 90 Lammergeier territories in the French & Spanish Pyrenees represents more than 75% of the total European population of this extraordinary bird.
    Join NaturesLens to capture images of Lammergeier & Golden Eagle, in Spain, during the Lammergeier & Golden Eagle of Spain photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 4 night/5 day duration on a Full Board, Non-Shared basis & costs £1599  £1299 per participant.
    Using a series of hides, you will have the chance to photograph up to 20 different individuals, in their natural habitat.
    In this magnificent location, the Lammergeiers are the kings of the mountain.
    The hides have been designed by professional photographers to take advantage of the best light & the best backgrounds. They are located at a height of approximately 1400 m in the Pre-Pyrenees near Lleida in Catalonia. Large, one-way windows enable you to capture stunning images of the Bearded Vultures (Lammergeier) & other scavengers as they perch on the ground & in flight.
    Accommodation is provided in a rural hotel located in a small town within a 45 minute drive of the hides.
    During these three days of intensive photography, it will be possible to photograph the eight different plumages presented by the Bearded Vulture & obtain images of more than 20 different individuals.
    Join NaturesLens for a wildlife photography holiday you will never forget.

    Recommended Equipment

    Recommended Camera Equipment

    For this photography holiday, we would recommend that you have available, an array of lenses from an intermediate telephoto lens such as the 100-400mm, through to your longest lens, whether that is a 400mm, 500mm or 600mm. If the longest lens you own is a 300mm lens but you have a 1.4x or 2.0 extender this would be suitable. In fact, you should pack your extenders as this will allow you to further vary your focal length on this photography holiday. A wide angle would also be useful if you fancy capturing some 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.

    Recommended Clothing

    For this photography holiday, we recommend that you pack plenty of warm clothing as the mornings in the hides may be quite cold. Layers of thin fleeces or mid shirts & jumpers will help you adjust to the various conditions easier since you can remove items of clothing as you start to warm up. For your lower half, thermal leggings & winter lined trousers would work best.

    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.

    For time outside of the hides, please bring a warm waterproof jacket & waterproof over trousers. Don't forget to pack sensible waterproof walking boots & a warm hat to protect your head.
