Birdwatching in Ria Formosa Natural Park

Birdwatching in Ria Formosa Natural Park

The Ria Formosa Natural Park, with its channels, salt marshes and salt flats, is home to Flamingos, Spoonbills, Egrets as well as various waders and waterfowl. Purple Gallinule and Azure-winged Magpie are typical. Summer birds include Collared Pratincole, Little Bittern and Red-necked Nightjar as well as Audouins and Slender-billed Gulls. Wintering of Booted Eagle, Osprey, Black-shouldered Kite, Blue Throat and Penduline Tit is common. Rarities with some regularity include Richard's Pipit and Red-knobbed Coot amongst others.

Our experienced guide, birdwatcher for almost 30 years, can take you out on a walk and introduce you to the flying inhabitants of the wonderful Ria Formosa Natural Park during a 5 hour excursion, meeting you just before Faro Island and can accompany you in English, German, and basic French or Portuguese.
