The beach at Morjim is good for gulls, terns and Small Pratincole, especially at high tide, with
other birds in the surrounding dunes and scrub. A visit to the tidal pools at nearby Parsham
should also produce some Kingfishers, Green Bee Eaters and possible White-belled Sea Eagles
hunting for crabs at low tide. The rare Grey-headed Lapwing has also been reported from here.
