Algarve birdwatching promotion

Promotion of the Algarve as a bird watching destination by the Algarve Tourism Board, ERTA, was launched with an English brochure outlining the many different species that can be found in the region and where to spot them at the British Birdwatching Fair held in Rutland in England between August 20 and 22.

The informative leaflet presents a number of the 300 different bird species that can be found in the region throughout the year, including birds of prey, seabirds, shorebirds and ducks, complete with pictures and basic spotting information.

The Algarve is being touted as a perfect destination for birdwatching due to its limited size, varied environments and large percentage of protected areas for wildlife including the Ria Formosa estuary and Castro Marim marshes.

“This brochure has been designed as part of an overall strategy to encourage birdwatching tourism in the Algarve, a pastime enjoyed by more than 100 million people worldwide,” said Nuno Aires, president of the ERTA.
