I started this blog four years ago purely as a means of disseminating information about the campaign to save Lagoa dos Salgados. A lot of it is long, tedious, announcements of what RSPB and SPEA have and have not done.
Since I have now "washed my hands" of the Salgados campaign (and resigned from the RSPB) in as much as I will not take any pro-active part in attempting to save this superb birding locality, but will continue to broadcast further developments, I have decided to turn the blog into a "lighter" view of birding in the Algarve, with piccies.
*Should anyone be interested (yawn), if you go way back to the original post you will find a photo of me and "Her Indoors" (Margaret); I do not normally allow myself to be photographed but this was taken by some dear friends from Canada, David and Gail (lovely people), who live on the edge of Lake Ontario and had "a whole bunch" of Ospreys nesting on platforms on their land.
You can expect in the near future some "interesting" exchanges between myself and colleagues and the RSPB - all guns are loaded and ready for action!!!
