Saturday, 21 April 2018 - Portugal - Algarve & Surrounding Areas

Despite the low turn out for the trip to Lesbos, it turned out to be very successful with lots of birds seen. In view of this I propose another trip next April to Portugal. It would again be self catering apartments. The flights would be with Jet 2 from Leeds/Bradford airport.We will be going for 7 days, the cost at the moment would be around £300 to £350 and from £368 for single occupancy.There would also be the cost of hire car or cars, this is approx. £108.00 per car. Birds that could be seen include Great & Little Bustards,Azure Winged Magpies,Calandra Lark, Black-shouldered Kites, Black-headed Weaver birds Black & Griffin Vultures and Storks. Plus many other species not seen in Britain. Anyone interested in this trip please reply as soon as possible as hotels tend to fill rather quickly. The dates will be from 21st April to 28th April 2018.
