June 2017: Fantastic news. We have just purchased additional land and our private nature reserve is now 40 Hectares (100 Acres) in extent. All of which is a no hunting area where wildlife will be safe and protected.

June 2017: Partially leucistic Eurasian Collared Dove seen at the pond (right hand bird of the pair) showing nearly white plumage.

June 2017: Looks like our Iberian Foxes now have cubs. Firstly we have seen two foxes together on the TrailCam. And now a fox has been photographed carrying a redlegged partridge chick in its mouth, most likely on its way back to its den to feed cubs.

2017: We have now put up official "No Hunting" signs all around the wildlife reserve's outer fenceline. So we are now an area where there is "Não Caça" (No Hunting) allowed.

Red over white "No Hunting" Sign - "Não Caça".

Two Sharp-ribbed newts discovered on the reserve. This species is listed as ‘Near Threatened’ on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Very exciting news indeed.

We are so excitied at having the opportunity to provide a safe home for a near threatened amphibian. Hopefully they will stay in our pond and thrive.

May 2016: See Iberian Fox Gallery for a truly astonishing sequence of photographs.
