LATEST IMAGES - GIBRALTAR3
The Bird migration across the Straits of Gibraltar was our main photographic aim during our recent trip at the end of April. A westerly wind is usually required to see the birds over Gibraltar, with easterly winds the birds are pushed towards Tafira. The numbers can be spectacular, on the Monday we were there there were over 900 Black Kites recorded by the very friendly observers at the Bird Observatory. A big thank you to them all with help sorting out the dots in the sky, they seemed to pick the birds up even before they had left Morocco! We had one good day for bird migration photography when the wind was very strong and forced the birds down over Europa Point. It was very cold and difficult to hold the big lenses steady against the wind but with persistence we think we have some decent images.
