Just found surfbirds and I love it! I saw on the map that Iīm now the only registered member in Portugal! It was about time somebody from Portugal joined.
By the way, Iīm Dutch, living now for 13 years in the Alentejo and just opened the new website http://birdwatchingalentejo.com
Itīs almost done and it can be used s a blog also.
But the main reason I joined here is that I need your help. I always loved birds and was always birding in Holland when I was younger.
But then one gets busy working etc. but now the time has come to enjoy bird watching again and I want to share this with others.
Regarding your help:
There are some real interesting species here but sometimes one can not be entirely sure. Therefor I bought a new digital camera yesterday and I will start shooting.
Now my big question is: Did I or did I not see the Spanish Imperial Eagle on my land. My friend, a lifelong bird watcher is 90 % sure but then I read everywhere that there are only 2, or others say 5 pairs, in Portugal.
So I will try to take a photo of it and although my site says we have the Spanish Imperial Eagle here I need to be 100 % sure.
We do life in a very remote area although close to a small town, but the nearest lights we can see at night are at a distance of 8 kilometers.
So if you want to see the Great Bustard ( not on our land but I know where they are) or the Azure Winged Magpie or Bee-eater let me know.
Hope this introduction isnīt too long.
