Los Lances Beach & La Janda

Our first stop was at Los Lances Beach in Tarifa which produced; two Oystercatchers, Grey Plover, Ringed Plover, Audouin Gulls, Sandwich Terns, and Northern Gannets.

Then we had a short drive over to La Janda and on entering the area we could already hear Common Cranes calling out in the distant fields. A good start we thought, and so it was...

Here are a few photos and a list of birds we saw on this particular outing:
  • Lapwings 
  • Meadow pipits
