|One of the commonest birds on the island, the Sardinian Warbler (Sylvia melanocepahala)|
"La Palma Nature Tours" is the companion to "La Palma Birds" (http://lapalmabirds.blogspot.com), which is primarily concerned with migratory bird sightings on La Palma.
The present blog focusses mainly on the island's resident bird species, as well as on other aspects of local flora, fauna and landscapes. It is designed to highlight the attractions of La Palma not only for birders, but also for natural history enthusiasts in general.
The island is famed for its rugged mountainous terrain, criss-crossed by an excellent network of hiking paths, but there are also pine and laurel forests to explore, and picturesque rural areas seemingly caught in their own particular time warp.
If you are impressed by what you see in the following posts, or are planning to visit the island in any case, you might wish to consider a personalised full- or half-day tour of the island.
