Regional departures may be available, please ask for details. Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands and has an arid desert-like landscape with an impressive volcanic, mountainous interior.Known locally as Viejo Pais Canario or 'the old country', Fuerteventura might be seen as a cheap and convenient alternative to the North African mainland, and though the birdlist is short, bustards, sandgrouse and coursers offer spectacular birding with a distinct feel of Morocco.Depending on progress with these birds we may spend the remainder of the day here, or further north looking for migrants. Day 3 We head south to the Peninsula Del Jandia today, with seabirds and waders on our mind.The coast here can see good numbers of Cory's Shearwater and Yellow-legged Gull (possibly of the form ) and the coastal areas can hold good numbers of passage waders notably Kentish Plover.Leader: Mark Warren, joined by Scott O' Hara with more than 7 clients.Max group size: Max.12 clients Departure from London Gatwick, morning flight.
Enjoy your complimentary pre-flight overnight hotel before your holiday. Day 1 After relaxing in our airport lounge, we fly Gatwick to Fuerteventura and transfer by minibus to our excellent hotel, just 40 minutes away.Day 5 We can't leave without a short walk through the impressive desert habitat at El Jable Dunas National Park with its Sahara-sized sand dunes!Although birds here are limited we should get close views of Berthalot's Pipit in any areas of scrub.These are good areas for Lesser Short-toed Lark and endemic Fuerteventura Chat, and Barbary Falcon can occur anywhere along the peninsula.Day 4 Today we head into the spectacular mountain interior of the island with many of the species already mentioned to be found, but our primary target is the local race of Blue Tit (), the ' North African' subspecies with a white wingbar, a stunning, distinctive looking bird which can be found in the trees and bushes at Betancuria.
