TARIFA - AUTUMN MIGRATION TOUR - SEPT 2016 TOUR 2

Unseasonably hot weather slowed us down a little and likewise the number of migrants passing through. However we had a few days where thousands of raptors filled the sky it was amazing at times. La Janda provided a refuge for many, many birds especially White Storks, Glossy Ibis, Cattle Egrets and Jackdaws! Thousands were present every day we visited, it was a great tour spoilt slightly by some very hot days and windy conditions on another. A total of 156 different species were recorded.
