Birding Picos de Europa is a birdwatching project located in The National Park of Picos de Europa (north of Spain) and its immediate surroundings.
From our lodge, in the outskirts of the small village of Llonín (Asturias. Spain), we have easy access to the most important birdwatchings places of the National Park and its sorroundings, from the cantabrian coast to the alpine zone.
Here, many of our most important birds can be seen in not more than 45 minutes drive. Great raptors like Golden Eagle, Griffon Vulture, Aegiptian Vulture, Bearded Vulture, Short-Toed Eagle...
