Life long birder, author, newspaper contributor on natural history, amateur naturalist and leading authority of cheap red wine, Jonathan Forgham, will be returning to our group to give a presentation on The Birds of Southern Portugal.
Jonathan has visited this area on many occasions, most recently in May 2023, and has recorded over 250 species of birds along the Algarve coast as well as venturing further inland, into the hills for vultures, eagles and highland species such as Black-eared Wheatear and Lesser Kestrel.  He will give details of travel and accommodation as well as highlight the hotspots along the coast.
Jonathan gives over 30 presentations for the RSPB per year, whilst also being a tour leader around his favourite birding country, Sri Lanka, which he spoke about to us in early 2023.
