The Lesser Kestrel was only one of the 120 species,  including 21 lifers, seen during a 5 day tour of Southern Spain centered on the charming old town of Tarifa in early September 2011.

The main prpose of this trip was to witness the migration into Africa from mainland Europe.

In addition to the photographs included we also saw the following key species---Audouin's and Slender-billed Gull, Griffon Vulture, Black Stork, Black Shouldered Kite, Black-eared Wheatear and Blue Rock Thrush.
Dipping on both Lesser Crested and Elegant Terns, Spanish Imperial Eagle and Azure winged Magpie may necessitate a return visit!
A mixture of Birds, Beer and Beatiful Scenery can only hearten the Inner Self of the older Generation!
