The Tagus Estuary, Lisbon in pictures

Just spend a stupendous four days in the Lisbon area including one day in the Alentejo Region - my favourite part of Portugal. The weather wasn't amazing. Mostly cloudy skies with some rain. Indeed, on our first day it was foggy most of the day.

The most mind-blowing moment was when I witnessed the vast clouds of Glossy Ibis and Greater Flamingo swilling around near Evoa in the Tagus Estuary.

I'll give you more of a breakdown of my trip tomorrow.
