If you are looking for a birdwatching holiday Cómpeta is a fantastic option. Andalucía, in general, is a birdwatcher’s paradise and attracts ornithologists throughout the year. The best time of the year, however, is during the migration season. With forests, native pine woods, natural parks and rich, lush, green countryside spreading for miles on end, it’s hardly surprising that this region of Spain is a haven for wildlife and home to a huge variety of species of birds. You can find a host of birds from golden oriole, bee-eater, swift, house martin, green woodpecker, eagle, little owl, stone curlew to the great spotted cuckoo, plus many other species.
