Extremadura 2010

This year, from 20-27 march, I spent some time in Extremadura attending an ornithology conference. During the first weekend and on our way back to Madrid, we had some time to photograph birds. Although time was limited, the region offers a great opportunity for bird photographers: a wide variety of interesting species occurs in a relatively small area. All images were made in the plains between Caceres, Trujillo and Santa Marta de Magasca, as well as in the Monfrague nature reserve.
