This guide details 110 sites in and around Berlin with detailed information on access, habitat and species. It contains colour maps and photographs throughout, and a calendar with seasonal highlights. There are suggested itineraries and recommendations on where to stay in this exciting but under-recognised region, as well as tips on finding sought-after specialities such as lesser spotted eagle, great bustard, little crake, thrush nightingale, river warbler, red-breasted flycatcher and rosefinch, and the best sites for seeing thousands of wintering geese, or the autumn crane migration.
