  • We are proud to announce the launch, jointly with Herdade da Apariça, of an import new conservation initiative. Herdade da Apariça is located close to the village of São Marcos da Ataboeira in the heart of the Castro Verde plains and is notable as being probably the pre-eminent breeding site in Portugal for the stunning European Roller. Initially, the conservation project, which is to be funded by Birds & Nature contributing a donation in respect of every client it takes to Apariça on its popular birdwatching tours in the Alentejo, will concentrate on the renewal of European Roller nest boxes on the property and the expansion of this nest box scheme (October 2022).

  • Sadly, we have to report that less than a month after being released in the wild, tagged Montagu’s Harrier P39 has been found dead near Motril, Granada, Spain. The first few months of any bird’s life are full of risk and juvenile mortality in Montagu’s Harriers is naturally high. P39 showed no outward sign of injury and a post mortem will be carried out on the bird to ascertain the cause of death (September 2022).

  • The captive-reared female Montagu’s Harrier P39 which has been fitted with a GPS-Cellular-Solar ACC Tracker financed by Birds & Nature Tours’ conservation fund, was released into the wild on 10th August and everybody involved is now looking forward to following the bird’s movements in its first days of independence. Further news will be posted as events unfold (August 2022).

  • We have just launched our new website! We hope you like it! (July 2022).
