New bird watching observatory built at Monte da Serralheira

The Monte da Serralheira is a unit of agro-tourism that has apartments for rent just outside the World Heritage city of Evora. Birdwatch in Alentejo and the owners teamed up in partnership in 2012 with the aim of promoting bird watching in the area, and last week came to the end of a project we’ve been working on together as we installed a new observatory on the edge of the reservoir within the property.

This new addition to Monte da Serralheira will enable clients to enjoy closer observation of birds occurring on the reservoir as well as fantastic photographic opportunities.

Many thanks to Isidro and Mr Luis who work at the property who have dedicated their time to ensuring the observatory project has been a success.

We hope to post some photographs taken from the new hide very soon.
