Fishing ports (1 Viewer)

I love sea-watching, and my favourite locations for it have always been fishing ports. I find that they have a very nice variety of birds, which are often very tame. Also they usually have good spots to set up one's equipment. Just today I went to one in Roquetas de Mar, ALM, Spain. I saw 15 species in total. The highlight of the day was a sandwich tern which kept flying from one side of the port to the other and back again.

What other locations would you suggest that are good for sea-watching?

Full list of species:

Feral Pigeon
Collared dove
Black headed gull
Lesser black backed gull
Sandwinch tern
Great cormorant
Little egret
Eurasian Kestrel
Common chiffchaff
Sardinian warbler
Spotless starling
House sparrow
White wagtail
European serin
