After years of on-off access and delays, Javi Elorriaga (http://birdingthestrait.com/) has today tweeted a photo of work currently being undertaken on the access road up to the Cazalla watchpoint (Tarifa) - some seven years after the facility was constructed. This is great news not only in and of itself, but also since it suggests "eco-tourism" is at last being taken more seriously by local authorities at this world class raptor watching site. Hopefully, work on the vacant buildings will follow since they offer a splendid opportunity for some good PR/educational work.
About me ...
Hi I'm John Cantelo. I've been birding seriously since the 1960s when I met up with some like minded folks (all of us are still birding!) at Taunton's School in Southampton. I have lived in Kent , where I taught History and Sociology, since the late 1970s. In that time I've served on the committees of both my local RSPB group and the county ornithological society (KOS). I have also worked as a part-time field teacher for the RSPB at Dungeness. Having retired I now spend as much time as possible in Alcala de los Gazules in SW Spain. When I'm not birding I edit books for the Crossbill Guides series.
