What customers say about Birding The Strait

“This is the third time my wife and I participated on an excursion with Birding The Strait! Both guides are a true delight and did everything in their power to organize the trips according to our wishes! These tours have been unforgettable highlights and being enthusiastic ornithologists ourselves, we are looking forward to our next chance to discover the Spanish birds in the province of Cadiz with Birding The Strait!”

PS - Zurich, Switzerland

“I can thoroughly recommend Birding the Strait. A friendly and highly professional company. Javi was very efficient in making the arrangements and we had two excellent days of migration and other birdwatching with Yeray. He is highly knowledgeable with excellent id skills, clearly imparted to the clients. He has a flexible and pleasant attitude, matching well to our requirements. His local knowledge, contacts and guiding greatly enhanced our experience of the area.”

HM - Woking, UK

“We have been out with Javier 3 times now and each trip has been Fantastic. Each time he has found all the birds that we wanted to see including Common Bulbul, Rüppell’s Vulture, Little Swift, lots of Common Cranes, Red Necked Nightjar, Lesser and Greater Spotted Eagle, etc. Javier’s raptor identification skills are second to none and you could not find anyone better to teach you. Javier has worked very hard to ensure we enjoyed our times with him.”

JK - Slough, UK

“Yeray guided our small group for a week, picking us up in Extremadura, birding our way down to Tarifa, and then birding around the Strait. What a great experience! He knows where to go -the obscure places as well as the famous ones- he certainly knows the birds, he took us to great places to eat, and it’s easy and fun to spend time with him. He’s also an excellent bird photographer, and helped me improve my photography. If you want to bird this region, you can stop clicking around and be confident that you’ll have a great experience.”

PH - Menlo Park, US

“We had been advised that Javi Elorriaga “knew his stuff”, but that turned out to be something of an understatement. Javi provided us with an outstanding day, showing us special places and wildlife. His enthusiasm for preserving the natural habitats of the area is infectious.”
