Description

Vilamoura, just east of Albufeira, has the biggest reed beds in the Algarve. Two observatories in the area might allow us to observe species like Purple Heron, possibly also Black-crowned Night-Heron and maybe Squacco Heron. The Ferruginous Duck, a highly endangered Duck-species occurs here, as well as Great Red Warbler, Purple Swamphen, Cetti’s Warbler, Kingfisher and the “Exotic” Black-headed Weaver. Marsh Harrier and Purple Heron breeds. Wintering birds includes Penduline Tit, Black-winged Kite and Booted Eagle. A sewerage-work in the area attracts large numbers of Gulls, but also Ducks and Grebes. Nearby, a coastal lagoon, called Foz do Almargem, allows good records of Red-crested Pochard, in winter, and some forest birds, since the place is surrounded by a dense pine tree area.

The reservation must be made with a minimum of 48H advance.
