We spent a most enjoyable morning with Javi in late July 2022. Off-peak season for birds but Javi took us see vultures, owls, a variety of other raptors and several large wading species. Highlight for me personally was a bee-eater. Between birding sites, Javi shared interesting details of bird migration as well as the geology, history and ecology of the area. Highly recommended and would definitely like to return when the wetlands are busier.

Our experience with Birding the Strait was nothing short of phenomenal. I enthusiastically recommend booking a tour with Birding the Strait—for birders and non-birders alike. Javi was an informative and pleasant guide. He took us to viewing spots teeming with birds and also offering beautiful vistas of Tarifa's natural surroundings. He has a remarkably quick eye and is incredibly knowledgable; we thoroughly enjoyed our full-day trip with him. We were thrilled to see two critically endangered species on our trip and have excellent opportunities for photography. While the trip exceeded my expectations as a birder, even my non-birding significant other said that she would book a full-day tour again. It is an excellent way for any admirer of nature to experience the abundance of scenic beauty, flora, and fauna Andalusia has to offer.

We had two fantastic days of private guiding. We saw many birds and Yeray was very knowledgeable. We look forward to birding again with Birding The Strait. 100% recommended.

The guide (Javi) knew the area inside out. He knew exactly where to go to see which birds, he asked me which species I was interested in the most and his knowledge of the birds' biology and habits is most impressive. You could tell that it's not just a job, but that he really loves birds. We began the tour by looking at some sleepy littel owls, which were in some olive trees that I would never have inspected without him. We saw vultures, a montagu's harrier, bald ibisses (!), storks, falcons, woodchat shrikes and many others in just half a day. It was easily the best day of my holiday. Thank you , Javi.

Fantastic and information packed birding outing. We visited five different sites and observed the full spectrum of birds and habitats along the strait for almost 11 hours. His academic and personality would be well suited to both life listers and more casual birders. Excellent equipment. His background in natural history (and political intrigue) provided a greater understanding of the southern tip of Spain and the evolution of habitat conservation. While his first language is not English, his communication was excellent. We would like him to share his knowledge and expertise in US.
