The Algarve Nature Week was here and I managed to get 3 people interested in one of my proposed activities! I know, I´m in the verge of going into mass tourism…
Deep into the hills, in a wonderful spot by ever constant flow of the Cerca stream, a group of outdoor people gathered to learn more about being in the wild.
As part of the Algarve Nature Week we took the children of Lagos for a quick birdwatching break, and for a fun awareness session on marine plastic pollution.
Balearic Shearwaters are one of the most endangered seabirds in the world, and Butch was determined to find one.
It was the second time I have had the pleasure of guiding Anton, a keen 8 year-old German birder, and his lovely family.
