Strait of Gibraltar and Brazo del Este, migrating Soaring Birds and Waders on beaches and wetlands


Travel guide

This trip is mainly focused on observing the migratory passage in the Strait of Gibraltar and many species of Waders in various parts of the Cadiz geography.

This is the best time of the year to observe the post-nuptial passage of the migrating species. If wind is favorable you can see thousands of Birds of Prey and Storks crossing this narrow strip of sea that separates Europe from Africa. It is not surprising to spot species rarely seen in other places of the Spanish geography as the Rüppell’s Griffon Vulture and the Lesser Spotted Eagle. In the Lances Beach you can also see seabirds like Cory's and Balearic Shearwaters and Northern Gannets.

We will also make a visit to the area of​​ La Janda and several marshes and beaches to observe closely a great variety of Waders and Terns. We will also try to spot the Northern Bald Ibis.​
