Programme Illustrated talk by Angus Hogg
Birdwatching in Cadiz Province and the straits of Gibraltar Angus will take us into the Tarifa hinterland in southern Spain, rich in breeding bird species of rocky wood country. Vultures abound here, with colonies of Griffon, Egyptian and Black. Tarifa beach is a favourite place to see gull and tern flocks with large numbers of passage waders, and the straits of Gibraltar is well known for bird migration.
