Speaker: Dr Dave Horsley

Dave is a fan of birding in the Spanish Steppes, parts of Spain close to the Portuguese border and very much inland. They are between 600-900 metres above sea level, so the numbers of large raptors that we often associate with mountains are not too surprising. Also, some of the passerines like the lovely Rock Bunting he showed us. The Southern Steppes identified by Dave were in Extremadura, and many of the areas were familiar to those club members who travelled to Spain in 2019, bringing back happy memories.
