Birdwatchers to descend on Sagres again in October

The Sagres Birdwatching Festival is returning for its 11th year between October 2 and 5, organisers have confirmed.

The event will once again feature many activities to show nature lovers that “the Algarve is much more than just its beaches”.

Each edition of the festival is unique, organisers say, although it is always certain that there will be birdwatching and ringing activities, walks, boat trips to spot dolphins and whales and much more.

The event is held at a time when thousands of birds fly over the Algarve on their way to their winter territories in Africa.

“This is, without a doubt, one of the main attractions of the event, but the interaction between participants and the diversity of activities are also more than enough reason for hundreds of people to return year after year,” say organisers.

Vila do Bispo Council is the festival’s main organiser alongside the Portuguese Bird Study Society (SPEA) and the Almargem Association.

The full programme will be unveiled in August on the event’s website.
