The Strait of Gibraltar is famed as one of the major passage points for Palaearctic birds migrating between European breeding grounds and their wintering grounds in Africa. Written by a resident of The Rock, this book gives a fascinating account of the birdlife not only of Gibraltar but also of the entire peninsula. He explains the reasons why it is such an important migration point, and details the effects of weather and visibility on route and timing of the migration. Illustrated throughout by Ian Willis.
`This is a major work which must have a place in the library of anyone interested in bird migration and/or Iberia.' AM Paterson, IBIS
