Bird Migration at the Strait of Gibraltar

August 14 2014

Dear reader,

A few days ago I had been at Tarifa, to watch Bird Migration. There was not much movement, but one is always happy to be able to see Booted Eagle

or even Egyptian Vultures in best weather on their way to the South:

A few dozen Black Kites were searching for thermal updraft and together with the a young Short-toed Eagle:

What a joy to see this beautiful big young bird from that near and

to be able to admire his flying skills!

The trip was worth it particularly because I also met nice friends!

Best regards
