Birdwatching in the Algarve
Highly experienced bird guiding throughout the year. The Algarve is well known for its many wetlands but also holds rich woodlands and other inland habitats. Additionally, the nature rich Sagres peninsular and the fabulous steppic habitats of the Baixo Alentejo are within easy reach, bringing some of the best birding in the Iberian Peninsula. We can bring you in close contact with all the birdlife of this region — as well as its unique habitats and other wildlife. Using personally acquired and detailed local knowledge our guided tours focus on revealing the more difficult species apart from the well known. European Bee-eater Merops apiaster is a common bird here and found almost everwhere throughout southern Portugal.

There are species to spot, including storks, avocets, sand pipers, mallards and the ever popular flamingos. Because the reserve is a permanent home. The Ria FormosaNow a UN recognised nature reserve stretching from west of Faro to the Ilha de Tavira in the east, is important for numerous water-birds, especially beach-nesting Charadrius alexandrinus and Sterna albifrons and for wintering waders and duck.
