    The autumn birdwatching weeks in southern Portugal ended mid-November. In total, more than 150 species were spotted. Highlights were definitely the flock of Vultures (4 species) soaring above our heads at Sagres and the many Black Storks, the big quantity of Glossy Ibis, good views of Great Bustards, Spanish Imperial Eagle and Purple Swamphens, many species of waders and duck seen at this time of the year. There are still vacancies for the spring tours, have a look at Week tours | A Rocha Life | A ROCHA Portugal
