New Book Launched on Birds of the Algarve

‘Birds of Algarve’ is a book published in 2014 by German biologist Manfred Temme. The 256-page volume, features beautiful images and descriptions in both English and German of 190 of the 250 (approximate) bird species recorded in the Algarve.

The idea of the book arose from the interest shown by readers of the Algarve’s German-language magazine Entdecken Sie Algarve, in its monthly articles by Dr. Manfred Temme, an accomplished ornithologist and photographer.

The publishers (Editurismo) worked closely with Dr. Temme to design and produce the book that is intended not only for an audience of birdwatching enthusiasts, a growing niche in the Algarve tourism market, but also anyone interested in nature.

“Birdwatchers in the Algarve gather at the principal locations that attract bird life such as the wetland areas of Ria Formosa and Lagoa dos Salgados where specific facilities exist,” said Dr. Temme. “But we also hope the book will appeal to property-owners and tourists who wish to identify and enjoy the birdlife that visit their homes, or even the hotels where they are staying.”
