Garden Bulbul Pycnonotus barbatus (1)
(1) Cádiz . A bird was seen on 25.4 at downtown Tarifa, Cádiz (Carlos Torralvo). It seems likely that the bird might have been drifted from Africa by the strong “Levante” wind loads in previous days. Despite the proximity of the African population (widespread in the African side of the strait of Gibraltar, including Ceuta), seacrossing represents a major effort for such a short-winged bird and, therefore, it’s presence in the Iberian Peninsula is highly rare. On 27.4 it was apparently relocated near Punta Camorro, Tarifa (John Miller). Seen again on 29.4 (David Cuenca, Álex Colorado) but it revealed to be another different individual since during may there were two altogether.
