Birds and the Ichkeul national park Tunisia
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Birds and the Ichkeul national park

In spring and autumn, over two hundred bird species, including eagles and hawks, fly through Tunisia during their migratory journey. Pink flamingos, gulls and waders gather in the marshes of the Gulf of Gabs. The Ichkeul National Park, south-west of Bizerte, is a major ornithological centre, especially in winter, when the waters of the lake and the marshes become the meeting point for over 200,000 birds arriving from the four corners of Europe.

White storks take advantage of the hot air currents to travel long distances. The Mediterranean Sea is thus an essential passage point for this migratory species.
