Morning Dog Walk: Plenty Of Birds Big And Small

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

I take a camera along on my Dog Walks to bring you some of the sightings that I see on my morning walks, these photos are rarely going to be great quality as its hard enough keeping an energetic Dog entertained and get close enough to anything. They also help me identify where species are so that I can plan to return.

It was another beautiful and cloudless morning that started off cold before warming up very quickly. On this morning’s Wally Walk, we circled a nearby Barragem (Portuguese for Dam) that is used as a Fire Fighting collection point. There are currently 3 Cormorants resident and also a Grey Heron that sits in the top of large tree.

Next Nature Photography Walk Is Saturday 27th October

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

Due to some other commitments I have been struggling to organise the next Nature Photography Walk. However, the next date is now fixed for Saturday 27th October.

Most of the summer visiting birds have either left or will be leaving soon and making way for our winter visitors. If course, the end of October could mean that some rain has come along but we’ll keep an eye on the weather beforehand.

Don’t forget that although these walks are free, I do ask for registration so that I know the numbers. The route is yet to be planned but I will update you on this when I put the route together.

Hope to see you there!

Registration can be done on the Nature Photography Walk Page.

This Morning’s Nature Walk

Thank you to everyone that came along today to my Nature Photography Walk, it was a nice warm day with a bit of wind.

A lot of the local wildlife were keeping quiet today although we did get a glimpse of a large Short-Toed Eagle flying which was a nice bonus.

The hills are in full bloom, some of which are a lot larger than usual due to the rainy spring. We spent a short while trying to identify various species.

New (Free) Nature Photography Walks

Algarve Serra

I’m not so sure on the interest this will raise, however, I’m organising frequent free Nature Photography Walks in the Algarve Serra.

These walks will last between 2 and 3 hours and will take in the stunning Algarve Serra countryside with fantastic scenery and wildlife, they are open to all including children and won’t be too strenuous.

Although the theme is photography, a camera is not mandatory and you are welcome to come along just for the walk. These are not workshops, but I will be on hand to discuss any photography queries you may have.

There will be no charge for these walks, they are just a way to share what the Algarve has to offer apart from just the coastline (even though that is fantastic too!).

Registration is mandatory for these walks which can be completed on the Event Page.
