The middle of August marks the beginning of the BIG migration in the Strait of Gibraltar. And today has been a BIG day in the Strait of Gibraltar. We had several thousands White Storks in huge flocks as well as an impressive numbers of Black Kites flying overhead. Also, some other raptors have been abundant: Booted Eagle, Short-toed Snake-Eagles and Montagu’s Harriers, specially.

A beautiful day in the middle of August in Tarifa, for those who think that there’s more than sun and beach in the summer! If September is the most popular time because of the diversity of species, August is definitely the winner when it comes to numbers and spectacular flocks!
