Tenerife’s Migrants

Many European retirees choose to escape the dark winter of their homeland in favour of the balmy temperatures of the Canary Islands, but don’t want to become full-time residents. We residents fondly refer to them as ‘swallows’ or ‘snowbirds’, but they aren’t the only species touching down on Tenerife’s shores as winter enfolds northern Europe. Birds, whales, sportsmen in training, people convalescing from illness, and more, all arrive with autumn temperatures, some pass on, some linger until warmer times arrive.
