The warm spring days are an idyllic time to explore the Algarve and observe a wide variey of interesting birds from Hoopoes to Purple Gallinule, Azure-winged Magpies to White Storks. On this trip you'll go far off the tourist track and discover a land of estuaries and salt pans, wooded hills and quiet marshes where the diversity of its habitats make for a truly memorable week?s birding.

During this 7-day Algarve bird watching holiday our professional guides will lead daily excursions throughout the region in search of southern Portugal?s resident and migrant birds. The holiday has been specially designed to give you the chance of enjoying the very best of Algarvian spring birding.

The emphasis of the tour is on quality not quantity taking the time to get to know the birds of Southern Europe and see what surpises each day brings. The guides have all the knowledge and enthusiasm needed to make this holiday a truly rewarding and enjoyable experience. Beginners and experienced birders are welcome.

During the holiday you will be staying in pretty, traditional Algarvian cottages in the hills above Loule. The cottages are set in beautiful mature gardens and there's a heated pool and jacuzzi.
