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.
This mornings Wally walk was different, Emma (my better half) is visiting the UK, so after dropping her at the airport we headed to Ludo right at the western end of the runway for a walk.
We saw many species of bird life as you’d expect from being inside the Ria Formosa park. The biggest joy was watching an Osprey searching for food. It was around an hour before it finally swooped down and caught a large fish, unfortunately, well out of reach of the camera.
I did manage to grab this shot of her, I think it’s a female due to the large size of the body.
She wasn’t the only bird of prey present, there were a couple of Common Kestrels out hunting too. This one flew straight across my view of the sun giving a nice back-lit shot.
As usual, the Ludo area is a great spot to view Spoonbills
