Photographic Tours

Birds & Nature has, in partnership with various land owners, built a number of specialised bird photography hides in Portugal.

At your disposal there are hides for many species, including Lesser Kestrel, European Roller, European Bee-eater, Little Owl, Great and Little Bustards, Black-bellied Sandgrouse, Griffon and Eurasian Black Vultures, Purple Swamphen, Greater Flamingo, Glossy Ibis, and Purple and Squacco Herons. Other possible species include Iberian Imperial Eagle, Black-winged Kite, Montagu’s Harrier, Common Crane, Stone Curlew, Red-necked Nightjar, Rufous Bush Robin and Iberian Magpie.

To give the best photographic experience, we have built several different types of hides, namely mobile hides, tower hides, feeding station hides, drinking hides and waterside hides. These are all easily accessible, located within one and a half hour’s driving distance from Lisbon. The guides are bird photographers themselves, so they can and do make sure that photographers have everything they need to get the best from our tours.
