Lidl Car park Tarifa


Tarifa Autumn Migration

Leader of the day: Frank Hair

Information about the meeting:
We will meet at the car park of Lidl on the outskirts of Tarifa at 09.00 am. From there we will go by car to one of the main migration observation points, spending a few hours to witness the spectacle of soaring bird migration. Depending on weather conditions we may visit other observation points to get the best of our day. For those requiring a lunch, we will use the Venta Apolo XI at Tahivilla, those bringing a packed lunch could visit the area behind the village and meet back at the venta at a prearranged time. During the afternoon we will visit Barbate Marshes and later La Janda.
