On Site: Castro Marim, Portugal

This Nature reserve is perhaps one of the best locations to observe and photography birds in Portugal. Squashed near the Spanish Border, it might be small and often overlooked but it still shelter an enormous diversity of fauna and flora.
Unfortunately with the recent construction of a bridge that crosses right in the middle of the natural reserver, connecting Portugal and Spain across the Guadiana rivers, it might not be a very quiet area, but its vast natural beauty extends miles from the highway so a few moments of peace can be encountered for those that enjoy a good walk. In the mean time, you may be rewarded with a great flock of flamingoes either on land or cutting through the blue sky
