RAM Census with Berlenga in sight! We rhave estarted the RAM census in Cabo Carvoeiro (Peniche). It was a very nice restart with the pre-nuptial migration taking place: large numbers of Northern Gannets, flocks of Razorbills, Common Scoters and Sandwich Terns
It’s now possible to see the youngest European Shags in Portugal! The breeding pair of European Shags, Portugal’s Bird of the Year for 2017, that is being monitored by the Portuguese Society for the Study of Birds (SPEA) recently had two newly hatched chicks. There is one more egg in the clutch, which will hopefully hatch soon.
