Tarifa

Four full days birding around Tarifa on the tip of Spain looking out to Jebel Musa in Morocco.
So many highlights but the sheer numbers of raptors in the sky were something I've never seen before. Black Kite, Honey Buzzard and Griffon Vulture were to be almost constantly visible on Migration to Africa.
Surrounding areas of countryside delivered many other species.
