Alvor Dunes – Afternoon Tour 4h

From: 50.00

The afternoon is spent exploring the Alvor dunes from a boardwalk. A few passerines can be found in the vegetation: Crested Lark, Zitting Cisticola, Sardinian Warbler, Goldfinch, and Greenfinch. If the tide is low, we can see the mudflats in the Ria de Alvor estuary and all the waders present: Oystercatchers, Sanderlings, Grey Plovers, Dunlins, Whimbrels. In spring, a few species use the dunes to breed, like Short-toed Larks, Kentish Plovers and Little Terns. We may see Kentish Plovers families or displaying Little Terns.

The walk back to the car will be on the beach, and it is always possible to stop for a swim. Then, we will walk along the Ria de Alvor marsh, looking for more waders or Bluethroats in winter. We finish the day with a drink or an ice cream near the sea.
