This is more than just one site, and can best be dealt with under four main headings:-
Calblanque – SAT NAV – N37 36.331 W 0 43.723. This is the area of the south coast below La Manga Golf Club, with a ‘wild’ beach and an old saltworks. Excellent for migrants. A big cliff up on the right has a pair of Bonelli’s Eagles, and Ravens are about too. You can see almost anything here. Beware of car-theft!
Las Urrutias – SAT NAV – N37 42.822 W0 51.484. This is a big, desolate area of ‘set-aside’ land just north of the village of that name. Always worth a look, it holds Lesser Short-toed Lark, is good in winter for a variety of larks and finches, as well as harriers. You may well find something else there!
Cabo de Palos (Mar de Cristal Salinas) – SAT NAV – N37 38.088 W0 43.007. A small saltworks just outside Cabo de Palos, reached from a complicated junction off the dual carriageway: Very good for Audouin’s & Slender-billed Gulls, as well as waders.
Cabo de Palos Lighthouse- SAT NAV – N37 38.007 W0 41.427. Can be a good spot for sea-watching in the right weather and the bushes below the lighthouse hold many small birds.
