Ornithology

In Rústica we work with rural lodgings from each region. We offer them our services in environmental interpretation and birdwatching and we provide them with the information on the avifauna present in each territory. Some of these accommodations are part of a project that develops ornithological tourism in Castile and León named TRINO (rural tourism of interior and ornithology). TRINO has financed the training of the managers of these establishments and also of local ecotourism informants, specialized in ornithology.

Talleres de Ornitología

We have designed birdwatching tours, ornithological courses and workshops, vying for such a necessary rural development and co-working with rural establishments. Our walks always primes the respect for nature, giving priority to birds tranquility. We work with limited groups and good optical material avoiding areas of particular vulnerability at certain times of year.

In addition to walks, we offer the possibility of taking customers to other points of interest within the region or any point of the peninsula for bird watching of emblematic birds or for visiting places of high ornithological interest such as La Nava and Villafáfila (Castile and Leon) or Santoña (Cantabria) Doñana National Park (Andalucía) or Pyrenees (in other parts of the peninsula).
At the end of the section we present the rates of our workshops and courses.
