Island Tours

The Canaries 31 Aug-06 Sep 08

  • A last minute decision, to use up some outstanding leave and get a bit of sun after the depressing UK August.  The sole intention being to see the Canary Island endemics that I had not seen during a previous visit to Gran Canaria – this was achieved with some aplomb...Mark Easterbrook reports

Wild Canaries ~ Birds & Landscapes 1st-7th February, 2008

  • High in Garajonay National Park the sky is peppered with dozens of zooming Plain Swifts, with the hint of a swallow tail, while the dense laurel forest allows great views of Tenerife Kinglet, African Blue Tit, with a black and white face more reminiscent of our Great Tit, and a stunning male Canarian race Chaffinch, with air force blue back and flanks...Chris Hall reports.

Wild Canaries ~ Birds & Landscapes (Tenerife, Fuerteventura and La Gomera) 2nd to 9th January, 2005

  • A cloudless cobalt sky and freshly chilled crisp clean mountain air, in the pine forest crown, which encircles Mount Teide. The perfect setting, for watching Blue Chaffinches, the first bird of our trip. Happy with the 'blues', we were soon into close encounters with Great Spotted Woodpecker, Raven and lovely yellow-green wild Canaries....Chris Hall reports

The Canary Islands (Tenerife , Fuerteventura, La Gomera) Oct 27 - Nov 3, 2001

  • First to be identified was the Tenerife race of Blue Tit followed by up close and personal looks at more Canary Island Chiffchaff. Another unfamiliar voice turned out to be the gaudy and conspicuous Blue Chaffinch (another life bird and another endemic). Once I learned its voice I found them very commonly in the Canary pine forest no matter where I stopped....Craig Faanes reports.

Canary Islands (Tenerife and Fuerteventura with an overview of the other Islands.)    Dec/Jan 1999/2000

  • The Canary Islands are well-known amongst ornithologists for their handful of endemic landbirds that are more or less confined to this archipelago, complemented by a few so-called Macaronesian endemics which can otherwise only be found on the Azores and on Madeira to the north of the Canaries. In addition, these islands boast scores of seabird colonies...Henning Fedders & Frank Rheindt report.  (Photographs too.)

Tenerife, Fuerteventura and La Gomera    7th - 20th July 1997(Rod Ward)

  • An enjoyable and rewarding trip. The islands have much to offer, birding and otherwise. Even in summer there are plenty of good ticks, and the endemics can all be found fairly easily with patience (and good planning!).

Some Useful bird books for the Canary Islands:
Do you have a good book for this region that we haven't featured? let us know


Field Guide to the Birds of the Atlantic Islands: Canary Islands, Madeira, Azores, Cape Verde
Tony Clarke: Buy from or

  • Long awaited. This excellent guide is the first to deal exclusively with the birds of this spectacular region. It covers all resident, migrant and vagrant species found in Macaronesia which comprises the Canary Islands, Madeira, Azores and Cape Verde. This has to be the field guide of choice for anyone visiting the islands. The status notes on all the birds are particulary welcome.

Collins Bird Guide
Lars Svensson et al: Buy from or

  • Described by some as the best field guide in the world, and 15 years in the making. Has it been Worth the Wait?...Yes definately! If you buy just 1 book a year then make sure that its this one. Stunning drawings by the worlds finest bird illustrators..and it shows..check out the plates on tern, Skuas, and the Ducks...not forgetting the Finches and Crossbills.

And some useful travel books:

The Mini Rough Guide to Tenerife
Christian Williams: Buy from or

  • Great to see at last a book that shows the real Tenerife. Must sees that the books backs up are Teide & Gomera. Can't wait to explore the Northern island on my next trip! Hope the fact that a book exists about the island will be enough to make people view this as a possible holiday destination.

AA Essential Lanzarote & Fuerteventura
Andrew Sanger: Buy from or

  • One of the best guides available. It is very user friendly with easy to use codes which covers just about everything you may need to know. Descriptions of places and attractions is brief but to the point, the only thing which could be improved would be the map as it not very accurate for driving purposes. Overall excellent guide with general information to interest all.

Nelles Travel Pack: Fuerteventura
Buy from or

  • Nelles travel packs offer a guidebook and a full-size pull-out map in one. This pack provides travel information for anyone visiting Fuerteventura, featuring up-to-the-minute travel data.


Lonely Planet: Canary Islands
Miles Roddis: Buy from or

  • This guide book covers all seven Canary Islands and provides information on how to hop from one to the other. It covers activities from surfing to cycling, provides details of the fiesta and ferias held in the region, and offers information on traditional crafts and indigenous architecture.
