Rdum tal-Madonna

The Rdum tal-Madonna Important Bird Area comprises a 4 ha linear strip of cliffed coastline about 200 m long near L-Aħrax tal-Mellieħa, at the north-western end of the island of Malta, in the Maltese archipelago of the Mediterranean Sea. Its rugged cliffs rise from sea level, where there is much rock debris, to a height of 25 m. It was identified as an Important Bird Area (IBA) by BirdLife International because it supports 500 breeding pairs of yelkouan shearwaters.[1]
