Flying into Malaga at night, as we tracking down to the MAR VOR there was a large installation of synchronized strobe lights in the area just to the north and around the VOR.
Anyone any idea what these are?

.... thought this was common knowledge.

We operate into AGP every day. Most pilots are familiar with the strobe lights you describe.

The lights demark the Cordoba Airdale Terrier Sanctuary (C.A.T.S.) - a charitable organization funded - strangely - by donations from the UK.

The strobes keep the natural enemies of the Airdales away from the facility during hours of darkness - mainly squirrels and cats.

Spanish AIP gives details, opening hours, PCN's etc.

Hope this helps.
