Gibraltar Strait, September 15th -22nd 2010.

Still a novice at working out which part of the Gibraltar Strait would yield best results in relation the conditions and wind direction, by trial and error I searched for watch points along the main coast road, using the distance markers I eventually found Cazalla, this turned out to be the best watch point, regardless of conditions. Many Booted and Short-Toed Eagles were crossing, although quite high up, flying a little lower was a Goshawk, notoriously difficult to photograph, although I probably only managed a good record shot, I was pleased with the result. After it all slowed down it was on further west to La Janda, where a juvenile Montagu's and a Marsh Harrier were showing well.
