  • We are excited to be able to invite guests of NaturesLens to join us for this 7-night wildlife photography holiday to Andalucia & the kingdom of the Iberian Lynx , the Spanish Imperial Eagle & the Black Vulture.
    We will spend time photographing the various mammals & birds found within the Sierra of Andujar.
    Join NaturesLens to capture images of Mediterranean Wildlife of Andalucia including the Imperial Eagle & the Iberian lynx, in Spain, during the Mediterranean Wildlife of Andalucia photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 7 night/8 day duration on a Full Board, Non-Shared basis & costs £2999  £2749 per participant.
    Throughout this wildlife photography holiday, we hope to be able to photograph Iberian Lynx, Red Deer, Red-legged Partridge, Iberian Green Woodpecker, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Sardinian Warbler, Robin, Crested Tit, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Hawfinch, Rock Bunting, Dunnock & more besides.
    The highlight is the possibility of spotting the elusive Iberian lynx – the world’s rarest cat.
    As well as 4×4 safaris, we will use hides that have been established within the areas. One hide is located by a waterhole & species which have been photographed here include Iberian Lynx, Red Deer, Red-legged Partridge, Iberian Green Woodpecker, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Sardinian Warbler, Robin, Crested Tit, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Hawfinch, Rock Bunting, Dunnock plus more. Another hide has been placed for birds of prey & the lynx. Species photographed at this hide include Northern Goshawk, Common Buzzard, Griffon Vulture, Black Vulture, Spanish Imperial Eagle &amp, & the Iberian Lynx.
    This wildlife photography holiday is perfect for photographers who wish to photograph one of the rarest cats in the world, the Iberian lynx. The typically small guest group size ensures that we have the best chance for encounters with this elusive cat. In addition to the hides, during the 4×4 safaris, we also search for the Iberian lynx on public & private land.
    Thanks to colossal conservation efforts, the Iberian Lynx is back from the edge of extinction; however, only 900 individuals exist in the wild. The bulk of these are concentrated in the rugged & unspoilt regions of Southern Spain.
    The Iberian Lynx is about twice as big as a large house cat; its hind legs are slightly longer than the front legs. The tail is short & has a black tip. The brown fur typically is made up of many tones.
    Please be aware that the Iberian Lynx is a rare & shy animal, so quiet & patience is required. The chance of success is estimated to be reasonable but not in any way guaranteed.
    For this reason, our itinerary will be flexible regarding the hide sessions & 4 x 4 safaris to give you the best chance of success.
    All participants must be aware that these animals are timid & do not show themselves for long.
    All that said, if you manage to photograph the Iberian Lynx, then this will be amongst the top wildlife encounters that you can experience & one that you will never forget because the Iberian lynx is genuinely, in our opinion, the most beautiful & rarest cat on our planet.
    Photographable Species: Iberian lynx, black vulture, blue tit, common buzzard, crested tit, dunnock, great tit, great-spotted woodpecker, griffon vulture, hawfinch, iberian green woodpecker, northern goshawk, red deer, red-legged partridge, robin, rock bunting, sardinian warbler, spanish imperial eagle

    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.
