I really love the Alentejo Region of Portugal. Set between the Algarve in the south and Lisbon in the north, it really is a relatively undiscovered jewel. I was there for just two days for meetings sandwiched in between tons of birding.
Saw some great stuff including a Golden Eagle at its eyrie with two eaglets. It was amazing. The first Golden Eagle's nest I have ever seen. And as if that wasn't enough, I was taken to a secret location to see an Iberian Imperial Eagle's nest, again containing two eaglets. I felt so priviledged.
What a great birding region!
