Hi Leslie and Andrew

I have put together the above list for addition if you want to add to your web page. The few photos of birds that are attached are from your area and site.

Kath and I relay did enjoy our stay with you and the friendliness of all the others staying made it even more enjoyable. You made us feel so welcome it was a bit of a wrench to have to leave, we will certainly be dropping in on our next visit to Portugal

During our stay at the Chicken Run Campsite there was a great variety of birds seen in and around the area of Mexilhoeira Grande. Without moving from the site and looking over the tilled field belonging to Andrew and Lesley owners of the campsite.

We can recommend the site for bird watching without having to move to far and the development of a bird hide on the small bridge at the end of the field opens up the potential to see shyer varieties of birds that use the small stream that runs along the edge of the site.

I hope that by adding all this information that you aren’t over run with too many people.

Best wishes and regards to fellow campers

Kath and Gordon.

We also saw crossing the road a family of Egyptian mongoose, down at the estuary which is around twenty minutes cycle ride from the site or ten minutes by car. You can see.

Over a period of ten days spotted over or on the field was.
