ANDALUCIA is promoting itself as a birdwatcher’s paradise after tourism chiefs travelled to the UK to highlight what the region has to offer.
The delegation attended the British Birdwatching Fair in Rutland, the largest of its kind in the world and often described as the birdwatchers’ Glastonbury.
Representatives from the Junta joined birdwatching companies at the fair to highlight Andalucia’s main areas for twitching and the key species visitors can expect to see.
Andalucia boasts around 150 natural protected areas totalling 3.3 million acres, more than 60 Special Protection Areas for birds which together are home to over 300 species of birds.
