Happy New Year to every one from Lagos, Portugal. After driving 1,700kms we arrived in Lagos to meet John & Olga for New Years Eve, and a great time we had, good food, good company & some fireworks thrown in for good measure. The weather here is warm, about 20* and mostly sunny, so much better than France or the UK. We have explored some wild places, walking the rather crumbling cliffs to Burgau, where we were lucky enough to see a Booted Eagle (which explained a dead snake we found on the cliff)
Sardinian Warblers were in nearly every bush touting for mates, sadly we have no photographs to show, but we have some super ones of our very first ever Monarch butterfly, and some rather cheeky Zitting Cisticolas, found along the magnificent Meia Praia beach, at the Reserva Natural da Ria de Alvor.
