    • and other birds - for example birds migration

      From BirgitK I got a link (or how can I say!?) where you can see the daily migration of different birds in the Strait of Gibraltar.

      Unfortunately it´s in spanish language … difficult to understand, but somehow it works. And it´s really most fascinating. The migrating birds are watched from different points:

      Alg > I don´t know …..
      Caz > Cazalla
      Fac > Facinas
      Tra > Tarifa

      Every day there is a new entry how many birds from which kind migrated on this very day. Here for example the 26th of August;

      Under the date there is obviously written about the weather, Viento del Este means eastwind (as far as I found out….)

      A few birdnames I hope the translation is right!?
