The Strait of Gibraltar is well known for its migration of birds of prey, which is spectacular ... but why stop there? Looking down to the sea, hundreds of thousands of Cory’s shearwaters pass before your eyes as the y enter the Mediterranean in the Spring or head out into the Atlantic during the Fall. This migration of vast amounts of seabirds will take your breath away, especially as you watch their rapid, undulating flight just inches above the water.
This area of Cadiz, right between the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea offers strategic points on the coast of Tarifa for watching this amazing seabird migration. At some of these places you can observe the endemic, and critically threatened Balearic shearwater during most of the year. Opportunities to observe Northern gannets, different species of skuas, razorbills, puffins, Audouin’s Gulls, terns, including the rare Lesser-crested tern and many species of shorebirds make this area a unique and exciting place for seabird watching.
