Project (Rural tourism and birdwatching) is the plan of thirty Local Action Groups, it is part of the LEADERCAL programme that comes under the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) in Castilla y León (Spain). It endeavours to promote bird watching holidays in Castilla y León with the objective of ensuring that the rural accommodation on offer covers the needs of the bird watchers and respects nature by using sustainable processes together with the commitment of good environmental practises.
The plan’s other objectives are to make sure the region acquires sharper environmental awareness through education aimed at children and young people; as well as to increase the understanding among arable, dairy and stock farmers; and to train guides.
There are other activities to make certain you don’t leave the region disappointed, like the conservation of protected species and routes that have been tailored to respect wildlife and their natural habitats, prepared for bikes, horses and horse-drawn carriages according to the species you want to see.
There is a wide-variety of bird-friendly habitats in the vast geographical area of the Castilla y León region. From the extensive plains of the interior to the surrounding mountains, diverse territories are formed that attract birds of different species. The birds you can find here include Euro-Siberian birds like the Capercaillie, Mediterranean birds like the Spanish Imperial eagle and steppe birds like the Great Bustard that lives in moor land.
