Osprey are regularly spotted on their migratory route between Northern Europe and Africa and love to stop off in the Delta to refuel. They can regularly be witnessed fishing in the rich waters of the Ebro on our boat tours. Best times are Spring and Autumn.

A common question; what's the best time of the year to see the greatest variety of birds?

The Ebro Delta offers outstanding bird watching all year round with many of the most spectacular birds being resident breeders here.

However, there are a great many species which are migratory and spend the summer in Europe whilst over wintering in Africa. Because we are on the migratory route that many of these species naturally follow, autumn and spring are great times to visit due to the different varieties of birds which can be seen passing through.

The winter months are also an excellent time to come because there are many species of birds (particularly ducks and waders) that come to the Ebro Delta to over winter in this perfect wetland refuge.
