Upper Rock Nature Reserve

In the spring and autumn the rock is a staging post for millions of migrating birds, in particular, large roaming raptors such as eagles, vultures and buzzards. Resident species include Peregrine Falcon, Blue Rock thrush and the rare Barbary Partridge. For more information on bird watching please visit our Bird Watching page.

No unauthorised private vehicles are permitted in the nature reserve, however  a number of walking, taxi or bus tours are available.
