With "Nomads of the Strait of Gibraltar", the author aims to inform ornithologists, botanists, naturalists, photographers, and, in general, all those people who are just curious about or have a passion for Nature, about one of the most fascinating enclaves for observing bird migration and about three very important Nature Reserves containing a wealth of biodiversity: the Natural Parks of the Strait and Los Alcornocales and the Rock of Gibraltar Nature Reserve. About 300 million birds cross the Strait of Gibraltar in both directions. Of these, about 700 thousand are soaring birds (raptors and storks) and a large proportion of this amazing biomass use the areas near the Strait as resting and feeding sites. More than 200 superb photographs, splendid drawings, plus maps and charts will help readers learn about this fabulous enclave, unique in the Western Palaeactic, where seas, cultures, religions and an exceptional biodiversity converge to make the Campo de Gibraltar an area of incalculable value.
