“Excellent birding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

David took 4 of us to the wetlands north of Valencia for a great day's birding in May 14. 2 of us were more experienced birders than the other 2, but David managed to please us all, finding our target birds and more. He's great company, and also gave us a little insight into the current situation in Spain.

A great day out with a birder who knows his birds and where to find them.

“Superb days birdwatching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Yet another superb days birdwatching with Dave Warrington this time on on the steppes of Castilla la Mancha. Meticulous in preparation and reconnaissance Dave knows where and when to go and "what's about". Great Bustards, Cranes, Southern grey shrike and White headed ducks where the highlights of the trip but you never know what he will find.
Thoroughly recommended and a day spent in the company of a really nice professional guy.

“Steppes and lagoons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

An excellent day out with Dave, to an area we would never have explored by ourselves. Dave provided the transport, good company and excellent local knowledge of what to look out for and where. We had great views of Great Bustards, White-headed Duck, Red-crested Pochard, Flamingoes, as well as Southern Grey Shrike and Calandra Lark, both of which were new for me.
Luckily, we were well warned about the likely conditions - and it was quite cold and windy - resulting in most species keeping their heads down.

Many thanks for taking the time to post a review. I´m delighted that you enjoyed the day and it´s always nice when people see a species for the first time. If it´s of any consolation, I was up there the day after and it was 3 degrees and even windier! Roll-on spring!!

“Albufera Wetland Birds and a Sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We were taken by David Warriinton to the village of El Palmar, near Valencia for an excellant lunch. We then visited an extremely interesting, and secluded, bird sanctuary, where we saw an amazing variety of wading birds. Altogether over 20 types.
After a couple of hours of wonderful bird watching, where David's expertise was absolutely key, we went to meet a local boat man, who took us on a trip round Albufera lake to see more birds, but most beautiful of all was the sunset over the lake. This amazing spectacle viewed from water level completed a truly remarkable experience. One which one would never forget.
The Albufera Lake area is beautiful protected national park south of Valencia.

“the highlight of our hols in Spain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We had a two day guided birding trip with David and it really was the best part of a 3 week hols in Spain. Not only did we see about 11 birds new to us but many more we would not have seen on our own. He knew exactly where to take us for the best chance of seeing birds. Apart from the birds we so enjoyed the areas he took us to, the steppes and the mountains, so different from the coastal resorts we usually go to.Although not absolute beginners we learned a lot about birds just by being with him for a couple of days. We can fully recommend a trip with David to anyone with an interest birds.
