Natura Algarve

Birding in Portugal

07.02.2008 // Natura Algarve

Portugal acts a bridge for migrating birds between Africa and northern Europe and so twice-yearly, vast numbers of raptors, storks and smaller landbirds cross the Strait of Gibraltar, many being carried across southern Portugal by the prevailing winds. We´ve occasionally found some of these birds in our garden, such as a Heron who had obviously been blown off course. During the months of spring and autumn many bird watchers flock to the Algarve and Alentejo to capture glimpses of other rare migrants.
