Narrative of the Journey:
From Fields to Tides: Our gentle walk commences at the heart of nature's classroom, the Cruzinha—A ROCHA's field study center. As we amble towards the Ria de Alvor marshes, the path weaves through bucolic scenes of grazing lands and ancient orchards, home to an array of species such as the pastoral Cattle Egret and the vibrant Azure-winged Magpie. The rhythmic hoot of the Little Owl and the theatrical swoop of the Bee-Eater may accompany us in the spring.
Marsh Melodies: Upon reaching the marsh, we are greeted by the theatrical Stonechats and the tuneful Crested Larks, perching proudly on fences. At low tide, the mudflats become a stage for waders, performing their feeding rituals amidst the backdrop of local clam and cockle gatherers.
Winged Wonders: The seasonal rotations bring their own cast of characters: Caspian Terns joining the seagull chorus in winter, the elusive Black-winged Kite making a morning appearance, and the mysterious Short-eared Owl owning the twilight canvas.
Circular Reflections: As our journey culminates, we retrace our steps back to Cruzinha, each footstep a chance to reflect on the interconnectedness of life and land.
