Great Bustards in Portugal

With great company from Norway, France and Belgium, I guided a photo-tour to Portugal, to photograph the Great bustards and many other birds. The group was very brave and endured the 15 hours sessions in the hides, entering one hour before sunrise, and leaving only one hour after sunset! But what a view from the little wooden boxes! Displaying Great bustards, sometimes too close! And many other species walked by, amazing how many birds live on the steppe-plains!

Have a look at my ‘Behind the scenes‘ gallery to see some action shots to have an idea of the ‘making of’.
