Event: Members Field Meeting for September 2015

Date: The date for this meeting is September the 19th

Meeting Point: Car park at Lidl on the outskirts of Tarifa 36degrees 01min 13.56sec N 5 degrees 36min 00.06sec W


Time: 9.30


Leader of the day: Frank Hair


Directions to the Meeting Point: Coming from the Algeciras side on the N340 it is the first turning for Tarifa, coming from the Cadiz side on the N340 it is the second turning for Tarifa halfway up the hill. The car park for Lido is on the right before you get into


Information about the Meeting: We will be meeting in the car park of Lidl on the outskirts of Tarifa as this is a place where we can pool cars and go to the observation point on the south side of the road. The fewer cars we take the better as there is limited parking at this observation point (Cazalla). The other observation point is on the other side of the road and if we want to go there we can cross the road on foot. But to put the cat amongst the pigeons if the wind is from the west we will be heading off to the other observation point which is near Algeciras (Algarrobo).  As with last year we will be splitting this event and some of us will be going to La Janda first and swapping for the afternoon.

Accommodation: We have 4 La Botica de Vejer, La Sacristia, Casa McCallion and Huerta Grande .  I have taken these names from the main ABS web site under links and then accommodation in Cadiz.


Clothing and Food: At this time of the year it will be hot, and there is little shade where we are going, so cool clothing is needed and a hat along with plenty of water.  I think that a packed lunch is needed for this day, as after we have a look at the birds on migration we will be heading off to La Janda to see what is waiting for the next day to migrate.

Possible birds: Black Kites, Honey Buzzard, White Stork, Short-toed Eagle, Booted Eagle, Egyptian Vulture, Griffon Vulture and possibly Black Stork.  These are the main souring birds but we should get some other migrants.

Hi Frank I have just moved to the coast, Estepona, and would like to join you.  Are there any formalities required or can I just turn up?

Hi Norman
                If you are a member of the Andalucia bird society all you have to do is turn up at the carpark at Lidl at 9.30 to enjoy, what has been in the past, a great day.  If your not a member you can join on the day, well worth it.
                                                                    Have Fun Frank

Hi Peeps Just had a look at El Tiemop and it looks good for Saturday as the wind is from the west and quit strong until Friday, on Saturday it turns the other way, from the East and is 36Km/h so should blow them our way.  At the moment there 22 on the forum so I may need a volunteer to help to split the group and half going to La Janda in the morning if it gets any bigger.
