Birds & Nature offers private-guide services for individuals, groups, clubs and associations, namely bird photography tours (short-break, week-long or more and tailor-made itineraries) at any time of the year.
Just tell us what type of trip you're interested in, the time of the year you would like to come and your particular target species, and we'll send you a detailed estimate without any obligation on your part. We can cater for any number of people, varying the price per person accordingly (the price per person will be reduced as the number of participants increases).
The above mentioned longer tours are based on the use of hides, especially held for several species. We also offer half or a full day bird photography tours without using these hides. For these shorter tours, please check our half and full day tours both from Lisbon and from the Algarve.
Birds & Nature has, in partnership with various land owners, built a number of specialised bird photography hides in Portugal and Spain. At your disposal there are hides for many species, including Lesser Kestrel, European Roller, European Bee-eater, Little Owl, Great and Little Bustards, Black-bellied Sandgrouse, Griffon and Eurasian Black Vultures, Purple Swamphen, Greater Flamingo, Glossy Ibis, and Purple and Squacco Herons. Other possible species include Iberian Imperial Eagle, Black-winged Kite, Montagu’s Harrier, Common Crane, Stone Curlew, Red-necked Nightjar, Rufous Bush Robin and Iberian Magpie.
To give the best photographic experience, we have built several different types of hides, namely mobile hides, tower hides, feeding station hides, drinking hides and waterside hides.
The guides are bird photographers themselves, so they can and do make sure that photographers have everything they need to get the best from our tours.
All our trips are organised with the proviso that the welfare of the birds comes first; at Birds & Nature we adhere to this ideal; as insiders, we know that the best way to see and photograph birds is to know the habitat, know the birds and the rest comes naturally!
