New Field Trip Available – Day Trip To Castro Verde – 13th May 2020

Facebooktwittermail

I’ve been planning this trip for a while (since last year) and today I can finally announce a date and bookings are already available. Only 8 spaces are available so will probably sell out quite quickly.

Here is a date for your diary, Wednesday 13th May 2020. This is a guided trip to the amazing Castro Verde area in the Lower Alentejo with transport included.

Come and join me for a day where you’ll be picked up in either Albufeira, São Bartolomeu de Messines or São Marcos da Serra in a Air Conditioned 9-seater Minibus and driven into the Steppe terrain around Castro Verde. You will visit the fantastic LPN centre nearby where you will have a presentation followed by staff available for any questions. For those that are feeling the need to explore, we will take a gentle 3.5km walk around the site to view the many species of bird life present in this area. If we are lucky we will see the beautiful European Roller that breed at the centre.

After a lunch stop (not included) you’ll be driven around the local Castro Verde area on the hunt for some of the larger species of raptors that frequent the area, including various Vultures, Eagles and Harriers. Of course, we may even get to spot the Little and Great Bustards that the LPN have helped survive in the area.

More details and bookings can be made on the Photography Field Trip: A Day Trip To Castro Verde, Alentejo shop page.

Rain was a possibility, however, when I arrived at the meeting point at 7:45am in Silves, there was a broken cloudy sunrise and the day was looking promising.

It was a cold start and at our first stop the White Storks looked very uninterested in waking up.

Spend A Morning Amongst The White Storks Of Silves

Facebooktwittermail

Come and join me on Saturday 9th February on a Field Trip at the historical city of Silves and observe the White Storks up close. During this morning Field Trip I will not only explain all about these gentle (or not so!) giants of the bird world but offer help and explanations on how to photograph them on their nests, feeding and of course, in flight!

This Field Trip is available to any experience of photographer and due to the size of these birds you won’t need a huge superzoom or telephoto lens, although some degree of magnification is required.

The cost of this trip is just €8 per person, all are welcome even if you have no interest in photographing them. Spaces are limited to just 10 attendees, so I would recommend booking early.

More information and online booking can be found on the event page – Field Trip: A Morning With The White Storks Of Silves – Saturday February 9th 2019

Take a look at a session I had with them earlier this year in THIS BLOG POST.
