Algarve Photo Fun Facebook Group Social Meet

Facebooktwittermail

We had our first social meet last Saturday of the Algarve Photo Fun Group that I host on Facebook. It was a small gathering at Algar Seco on the cliffs above Carvoerio where we walked and talked photography (and many other things). We even took a few photographs too! Later on, we headed down to the square in Carvoeiro for lunch.

If you have an interest in photography and are also in the Algarve (permanently, visit or even holiday here) come and join the Algarve Photo Fun Facebook Group.

We hope to organise more of these social meets in the future, the next is being discussed right now!

Here are a few photos I snapped.

NEWS: I Now Offer Personal Nature Walks

Facebooktwittermail

As probably know I run an occasional free Nature Walks here in the Algarve Hills where everyone is welcome. They are very popular and spaces are limited often meaning people miss out. I have been asked on many occasions if I would run private walks to compliment my free ones.

Well, I can now announce that private Walks are now available. Of course, I cannot run these for free so there is just a small cost of just €10 per person with a minimum charge of €30. To keep these walks personal the maximum group size is 10 people. For example, a group of 8 people is €80 (€10 per person) and a group size of 1, 2 or 3 persons is €30.

More information can be found on the Product Page and please Contact Me for your own private booking.

The Mystery Bird From Yesterday’s Nature Walk Identified

Facebooktwittermail

First all, a big thanks to everyone that turned up yesterday for the first Free Nature Walk of 2019.

What an amazing morning out in the hills, the weather was almost hot, but certainly very warm and there were plenty of things to see. The one thing that got us excited was a dark black/blue bird that appeared a little too far away to ID. At first I thought it was a Starling, but then it stood upright like a Thrush. It disappeared before we managed to get a good view or shot of it and continued our walk. A few names were branded about and I mentioned the possibility of a Blue Rock Thrush. I have never seen one let alone locally to the house.

We continued our walk and the route brought us back past the same location on our return. I spotted it again, this time in full view albeit a long way, it was also now a view directly into the sun.

I snapped a photo but couldn’t tell from the image on the camera. This morning, I have cleaned the image up a little and gives a perfect view, I can now confirm it is indeed a Male Blue Rock Thrush. I visited the same location this morning, but couldn’t spot it but as these birds are resident in Portugal, I will keep an eye out for it and maybe stake out. It is possible that it will nest in this barn that it was spotted at.

Next Nature Photography Walk Is Saturday 27th October

Facebooktwittermail

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.
