Lanzarote might be lacking in the sheer quantity of birds residing across the island, however there are  some interesting species to spot for anyone who enjoys birding.

Birdwatching Desert lanzarote

The Eco-Insider Lanzarote team know just where to look to spot some of our native and visiting bird species. The island attracts a large variety of migrating birds during our winter months.  There are some impressive bird mating dances to be witnessed during the Spring breeding season.

This birdwatching excursion includes a visit to the protected area of the desert, known locally as El Jable in the area of Soo and Famara. Eco-Insider Lanzarote founded a conservation project called Desert Watch and have been monitoring this area of Lanzarote carefully for a couple of years. The aim is to understand the impact of environment and climate change on local birdlife, which includes the endangered species of the Houbara Bustard.

Birders will be taken along the sandy tracks of the desert in a 4×4 jeep, to areas usually inhabited by bird life. Binoculars are provided to allow the observation of these birds from a respectful distance.
