  • Arrived as novices, left as ‘pros’… I now know a purple swamp hen when it’s shaking it’s snowy white tail feather! All thanks to the excellent guide who spots the action in seconds, relates it back...

  • Beautiful visitors centre, easy paths and lovely hides with so much to see. Cafe for drinks and tpilets. Interesting displays. Saw lots of birds. Difficult to get to without a guide so plan it was part of a day trip as 45 min taxi from train station.
  • Absolutely love this place. For anyone who enjoys birdwatching, especially for waders, and especially for those who are used to walking around nature reserves with observation hides, this is a must. There are many places one can birdwatch from in and around Lisbon, but what EVOA does is special and uncommon in Portugal - they have several hides and a photography shelter. Care is taken to manage water levels and to keep disturbances to a minimum. Visit in winter for a quiet time (but plenty of wintering birrds!) and avoid summer weekends where it might b busier.
