Friday, 11 June 2021 08:34


This summer we are organizing guided field trips, led by members of the Bird Center staff, to observe the Ospreys which are breeding in Urdaibai. This is a historic moment as the species has not reproduced here for many years.

The adult ospreys, who are known as Roy and Landa, are raising two beautiful chicks which were born in a nest in the reserve.


We can enjoy the presence of these notable birds in Urdaibai thanks to the osprey recovery project which was carried out by the Urdaibai Bird Center in collaboration with the Provincial Council of Bizkaia and the Basque Government.

Visits to observe the ospreys will last approximately 3 hours and will be made up of two parts. First, at the Urdaibai Bird Center, there will be a brief presentation on the history of this interesting pair of Ospreys. After this, the field trip will take place and there will be a visit to the location where the recovery project was carried out
The tour will also address aspects related to the landscape and the different habitats in the Biosphere Reserve . Visitors will be able to observe birds that share the habitat with the ospreys.

Finally, all participants will be given an invitation to the Urdaibai Bird Center museum and observatory.

The minimum age for the guided field trip is 8 years old. The price for 8-14 year olds is 15€euros. The price from15 years old up is 25€.

The visits will take place every Saturday from June 19 to August 28.

In order to participate in these guided field trips, it is essential to register in advance by calling the following telephone number 699 839 202, Places will be limited to 12 people per group. All visits will start at 9:30 in the morning from the Urdaibai BirdCenter.
