First guide in the excellent new 'Crossbill Guides' to major European natural areas.
From the publisher's announcement:
In the far northeastern corner of Poland lies an unexpected natural gem: the Biebrza river valley. The river flows like a shiny ribbon through dense flood forests, mysterious alder woods, flowery river dunes and open sedge marshes. It is the most intact floodplain left in central Europe. Here, in what seems like an anachronism compared to the rest of the central European plain, you still encounter elk, several eagles, cranes and black storks. Even wolves and such avian rarities as aquatic warbler and great snipe are found in the Biebrza marshes.
For the visitor the Biebrza's wild nature, together with the surrounding lovely rural scenery, forms an exciting and living travel destination.
This nature guide is part of a series of innovative new guides for nature enthusiasts. The Crossbill Guides combine interesting and insightful stories with up-to-date and practical tourist information. Detailed descriptions of hiking trails, canoe trips and car routes are conveniently linked to information on everything you want to know about the whats, wheres and whys of splendid nature.
