I’m off to the Birdfair tomorrow so just thought I’d leave on a high – and what could be higher than mucking around over the lake in a Microlight, courtesy of Dave and Karen from the Algarve Airsports Centre based down in Lagos.
They regularly pop up to take our guests out for a spin here and there’s really no better way of seeing just how large the lake is, so if you fancy getting up there with the birds drop us a line!
Talking of the Birdfair, it runs next Friday, Saturday and Sunday in Rutland. I’ll be on Stand 93 in Marquee 4, “Birding in Portugal“, and’ll be giving a lecture about Salgados on Friday at 17.00 so if you want to find out the current state of affairs and have a chat, it’d be great to see you there!
