We won 3rd prize for our stand at the British Birdwatching Fair!

Paradise blog-022

We took our usual place at the Birdfair last week - only we doubled the space and had a bigger stand. It was a huge amount of work to design and organize it all, but we wanted it to go well and to make a splash out of the expansion of our sister company, “Birding in Portugal” and our new website - and all the work paid off when we won 3rd prize out of the whole Fair for it! Well choughed!

We also ran our annual raffle for a week’s free accommodation in a double or twin room for two people here at the Quinta anytime during mid-season in 2015 - and the winner this year for 1st prize is Tamsin Page.

2nd and 3rd prizes of three free mid-week nights in the same accommodation and during the same period are Andy Davis and Chris Straw.

All the winners have to do is to email us before 7th September using the same email address you gave us at our stand and we’ll take it from there.

Congratulations to those three; hard luck to the rest of you and better luck next time!

Many people have urged me to tell the Quinta’s story on this blog, and seeing as I haven’t written anything for, (heavens above!), two months, it seems only fair that I should do something a little special, so here’s a small video Daniela and I put together over the last week; we hope you enjoy it!
