The birdwatching tour

The birdwatching tour is scheduled on Saturday 28th from 9:00AM. We will have a plenty of time to give opportunity to test the app during the walk, discuss the functionalities and to survey our first users of the new platform for birdwatchers.

“The Serra do Cauldron and the Vascão Ribeira basin are of high natural value space, particularly for birds. There are some emblematic species of our wild fauna such as the threatened Bonelli’s Eagle, the snake catcher Short-toed snake eagle, or the colorful Kingfishers and Bee-eaters. In this output, the guide will show some of these species that inhabit this territory and explain various aspects of their biology and how to identify them” (WFA).

“A Serra do Caldeirão e a bacia da Ribeira do Vascão são espaço de elevado valor natural, nomeadamente para aves.

Nesta saída, o guia dará a conhecer algumas dessas espécies que habitam este território e explicará diversos aspectos da sua biologia e como os identificar” (WFA).
