Welcome to Birdwatching-Algarve!

About my Tours:
Living in Central Algarve, right next to the beautiful Ria Formosa Natural Park, I can guide you through all South Portugal. Tours can be tailored to your individual needs – various itineraries and target species are possible – head out in search of your “lifer” and see the highlights of the season – nearly 100 different bird species can be seen on a day-tour. For further details, check "Tours & Trips" on the sidebar or contact me.

About myself:
Born 1968, birdwatcher for about 40 years with detailed knowledge about the birds of Portugal and the Western Palearctic. I studied biology and geography in Germany and worked there as a teacher, started a project for the protection of a wetland area with success. I am familiar with the regional birdlife of Portugal for more than 20 years now. I am a member of the Portuguese Society for bird studies (SPEA) and the nature conservation NGO "Liga para a Protecção da Natureza" (LPN) and work as a Tour-guide for several Operators for birdwatching-travel from D, CH, SE and the UK (birdingtours, Wildlife Travel UK a.o.) for the Golf-Resort of Quinta do Lago, Centro Sciencia Viva, Faro and Algarve University occasionally. Besides my work as a field-guide, I participated in surveys investigating the impact of windfarms on bird populations, in particular on birds of prey, in the Serra de Caldeirão and the Cape-area near Sagres. I am fluent in German, English and Portuguese.


Please find the updates about my work, recent bird observations (including rarities records) on my Blog about Birds & Birding in the Algarve and the South of Portugal or connect with me on facebook.

Looking forward to see you soon !!!
