Birdwatching in Alqueva Dam Area.
Birdwatching in Alqueva.
The area around the Alqueva and Monsaraz has great ornithological richness that are perfect for birdwatching. The low density of its population, the huge amount of water available in the dam, the various lakes and reservoirs around the area and the variety of habitats, make it home to an astonishing diversity of species. Besides the numerous resident species, many others congregate in this area to breed or to get away from the cold winters in Europe.
