Birdwatching Trip in Tarifa & La Janda, Andalucía, Spain

1-day Tarifa & La Janda Birding in Andalucía Trip which is leisurely paced and available on request. This day-trip takes you to the Straits of Gibraltar, which is the shortest stretch of water between Europe and Africa and a favourite crossing point for legions of migratory birds in spring and autumn each year.

In the area around the town of Tarifa, there are spots of international importance for birds such as La Janda, Los Alcornocales Natural Park and the Barbate Marshes. This is what makes birding La Janda and the others such a supreme experience.

In spring and autumn Tarifa becomes even more of a compelling place to visit as it hosts the annual migration of thousands of birds travelling between Africa and Europe. At this time it really is 'eyes to the skies'!

There are also many exciting species of resident birds to be seen on your Tarifa and La Janda birding excursion. Birds such as the rare Northern Bald Ibis and its more common cousin Glossy Ibis, Spoonbill, Little and Cattle Egret, Greater Flamingo, Squacco Heron, Hoopoe, Griffon Vulture, Bonelli’s Eagle, Black-winged Kite and Purple Swamp-hen.

Their numbers are swollen in summer by Egyptian Vulture, Savi’s Warbler, Purple Heron, Bee-eater, Little Bittern, Gull-billed Tern, Turtle Dove, Booted and Short-toed Eagles and Subalpine Warbler. And in winter a trip to go birdwatching in La Janda and the Tarifa area can include Red Kite, Black Stork, Common Crane, Great Egret and Osprey.

Tarifa & La Janda Birding in Andalucía Trip highlights include:

  • Spectacular views of bird migration in spring and autumn
  • Birding internationally important natural parks and marsh areas
  • Possible sightings of Northern Bald Ibis, a successfully reintroduced wader
