The strait of Gibraltar lies in a strategic location for birdwatching. Migration of soaring birds & seabirds occurs almost year-round and the sheer numbers can be impressive in the peak seasons March-May & August-October. Birds of prey such as Honey Buzzards, Black Kites, Short-toed Eagles, Booted Eagles, Griffon Vultures, White & black storks, pass in their thousands, with smaller numbers Egyptian & Griffon Vultures, Marsh, Hen and Montagu’s Harriers, Sparrowhawk, Common Buzzards, Ospreys, Eleonora’s Falcon and many others.
What will you get?
The incredible experience of learning how to identify various raptors from a long distance by merely using head-on angle, flight action and build WITHOUT even perceiving any colour or other distinctive features of many species.

Will depend on the weather and wind direction on the day, but having experience bird of prey migration for the past 40 hears, we know where the main passage routes will be the day before by paying attention to the clues natures gives you and which we have been able to tap into through the years.
We know exactly where to to be postioned to obtained the best photos. With the years, one tends to develop a sort of 'perceptive ability' to be able to predict small changes in wind direction which would influence where the main passage will flow by in order to be best positioned to photograph these lovely birds.
