We went birding yesterday and today at the Santo Andre Lagoon in the Alentejo region of Portugal and here is the list of birds we saw yesterday. Below are some photos as well.
Later I will put up the list of today which does include the Purple Heron.
We were very pleased to be able to see some special species and probably will go back again tomorrow. It is only 15 kms away
Great Crested Grebe
Great White Egret
Southern Grey Shrike
Great Spotted Woodpecker
