Gibraltar - Winter Birds
We decided to pay a random visit to the Alameda Botanical Gardens one sunny afternoon in between all our Christmas and New Year luncheons, and luckily there weren't that many tourists about so we were able to capture some good shots of Chiffchaffs and a Redstart.
We then headed to Rosia, where we spotted some Gannets feeding just 10 metres away from the pier at the rocky 'beach' known locally as El Quarry. We then followed them all the way to Europa Point and we were able to get some fantastic shots by the lighthouse.
Hope you enjoy these photos! All the best for 2011!
