Enjoy a 3-hour private birdwatching tour in the protected areas of Ludo and Quinta do Lago and discover the best of the Algarve bird life with a local guide.
This private tour departs from Faro to explore the protected areas of Ludo and Quinta do Lago. These two areas are extraordinary places for birdwatching. The fact is these areas are some of the best birding spots in the Algarve.
Put on your birding hat and have a great time out discovering one of the best birdwatching spots of the Algarve.
It is a mosaic of pine woodlands, saltpans, farmland, marshlands, and freshwater ponds. The local specialities here are the Little Bittern, the Purple Swamphen, the Red-crested Pochard, and the exotic Black-headed weaver and most likely seen in the reedy pool on the edge of freshwater ponds.
Several migrant passerines mark Autumn season, including Melodious and Willow Warblers, Tawny Pipit, and Bluethroat. The reed beds are vital for several nesting waterbird species and large numbers of migrating passerines during autumn and spring migration.
Other lovely birds like the Spoonbill, the Black-winged Stilt, the Avocet, and the Kentish Plover are species that you can observe all over the year. Other breeders include Collared Pratincole, Great Spotted Cuckoo, Yellow Wagtail, Woodchat Shrike, and beach-nesting Little Tern.
Winter is quite interesting due to the concentrations of waders and ducks that take refuge here. Other interesting species like the Caspian Tern, the Osprey, the Black-shouldered Kite, the Marsh Harrier, and Booted Eagle are some of the other regular visitors in this coldest season.
Sightings of reasonable numbers of the Greater Flamingo are common all year round. Excellent views of the sociable Azure-winged Magpie, the hard to miss Hoopoe, and the lovely Sardinian Warbler are some of the other highlights.
Ludo and Quinta do Lago are well worth discovering. Join us on a birdwatching tour of this beautiful site. We promise you a memorable day out filled with lovely birds.
