This afternoon I went to Lagoa dos Salgados (Silves, Algarve) to log 69 species, including this female Ring-necked duck, two first winter Common gull and, at list, 5 Barn swallows. Interesting enough was the fact of some of this birds were activily moulting mid wing, indicating the possibility of wintering in the area.

I was born in west Portugal and began birding at the age of 11. I have particular interest in bird ringing (banding), moult, seabirds and rarities. Currently I work as a guide for Birds & Nature Tours.
