Extremadura and Coto Doñana Tour 21st -28th April

Azure-winged Magpie at the Coto Doñana last week.





 Here are some photo highlights of Limosa Holidays tour to Extremadura and Andalucia. This was a two centre holiday based for four nights outside Trujillo in Extremadura and three on the Doñana at El Rocío.

 It was a great tour, with lovely tour participants that all got on well together and really enjoyed both experiences of two great widlife areas and watching all the key birds both National Parks have to offer.
