On the 1st of October, Rewilding Portugal promoted a birdwatching activity in the Ermo das Águias rewilding area and on the banks of the Côa river, in Vale de Madeira. The event was joined by 20 participants. During the autumnal migration, participants were able to observe around 39 species of birds, including the wheatear (Oenanthe oenanthe), kingfisher (Alcedo atthis), and griffon vulture (Gyps fulvus) from the Ermo das Águias colony. During the visit, it was also possible to present some of the work of Rewilding Portugal and to get to know the herd of Sorraia horses in a semi-wild state in this area. This activity was carried out within the scope of the LIFE ENPLC project, which aims to promote nature conservation in the private sector, with a wide consortium of organizations including Rewilding Portugal and Montis, which also attended the event.
