From 25 to 27 May 2018, the second edition of ObservArribas was organized by the Life Rupis and the Municipality of Miranda do Douro.
This event Observarribas it’s also known as Iberian Nature Festival of Arribas do Douro. It was held in the heart of Douro International Natural Park. The festival was focused on products and services linked to nature and the region with very diverse programme. It included birdwatching and bird ringing sessions, nature walks, workshops and talks. There were also activities for children and exhibitions but we didn’t observe there only the birds, we had a chance to peek through the telescope of Plataforma de Ciência Aberta!
This year the event celebrates the 20 years of Douro International Natural Park and Bonneli’s Eagle, chosen as Bird of the Year 2018 in Portugal, one of the target species of Life Rupis project.
The impressive nature of Miranda do Douro, the activities that happened during the festival, and even the Jupiter with its 4 satellites at the night sky were captured in some of our photos you can see below.
