As one of the largest wetlands in the country, the Sado estuary is also one of the best places for bird watching at any time of the year.

During our tour we will visit the Lagoa dos Patos (Duck lagoon).

Although known as the Duck Lagoon, this wetland is in fact a reservoir. Although not a major water area, here you can see the highest concentrations of ducks throughout the Alentejo. Moreover the adjacent rice paddies attract waders and other waterbirds. A visit to the Lagoa dos Patos is unavoidable.

  1. Looks fabulous very interested for a private tour for 2 people who love birds
    all wildlife also have a passion for photography.
    We should like to visit maybe Jan / Feb 2017 where would we fly to please?

  2. You could fly either to Lisbon or Faro, it does not make much difference. Most people book our birding week which includes 2 excursions with me (Bert) in my 4 X 4, one half day trip (4 hours) to the lagoon of Santo André and a day tour (8 hours) to the steppes of the Alentejo region in Portugal. Included also is an information package with routes to the best birding areas and what you can see there and also 2 sessions in our bird hide at our property. An example of this birding week can be found at the next link: https://birdwatchingalentejo.com/daily-program-of-birding-holiday-in-alentejo-region-portugal/
