Birdwatching in Lagoa dos Salgados

We will meet up at the time of your choice at the Lagoa dos Salgados car park, located just a few miles from Albufeira. From here, we will start with a bird watching tour in one of the most important nature reserves in the whole Algarve.

For four hours, we will visit the most beautiful enclaves of this coastal lagoon in order to observe the behavior, and learn about the characteristics, of the more than 200 species that live there. We will go in search of the less common ones, such as the lesser yellowlegs and the pectoral sandpiper.

We will see the western marsh harrier, the ferruginous duck, the penduline tit, and the elegant purple heron, among others. Along the way, we will be helped by the guide's explanations, binoculars, and a telescope to help us spot the greatest number of birds in the marshes. 

After some time, we will finish the experience at the starting point.
