PORTUGAL, AUTUMN 2020
Tuesday 29th September - Tuesday 6th October (8 days), with Fernando Enrique
Join us for an autumn birdwatching tour to the Algarve in sunny southern Portugal, visiting the key coastal sites - west to the migration hotspot of Cape St Vincent. Features a half-day pelagic boat trip that can be excellent for seabirds plus a day trip to the fabulous Alentejo steppe seeking Great and Little Bustards.
Migration can also be exciting in autumn: recent tour highlights have included Sooty, Great, Cory’s and Balearic Shearwaters, Wilson's Storm Petrel, Spanish Imperial Eagle, Grey Phalarope, Iberian Magpie and Bluethroat. Over the years, our groups have found a surprising number of unexpected rarities, too... from Rüppell's Vulture to Portugal’s first Booted Warbler!
