Southern Portugal: Birds and History – Tour Report by Rafael Galvez

“VENT’s first ever Southern Portugal: Birds and History tour was a great success, granting participants countless encounters with the unique avifauna of the Iberian Peninsula in a variety of scenic habitats, complemented by visits to many historical sites, and fantastic traditional food and wine.Not only did we see 153 bird species – some of which can only be found in this region – but we also visited Roman temples, Palaeochristian ruins, Moorish castles, and strolled through the characteristic white-washed streets of provincial Portugal.”

VENT’s first ever tour to Portugal took place from 03-14 May this year and was a great success. Please check out Rafael Galvez tour report, posted in VENT TOUR web site.
