About this book

This new title in the Crossbill Guides series covers the two eastern Canary Islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. With their unique insular nature and geology and colourful underwater life they are areas attractive to nature tourists and birdwatchers. As opposed to the other Canary Islands, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura has a unique desert landscape that is home to unique plants and birds.

The Crossbill Guide: Canary Islands, Volume 1: Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, Spain is the first of a series of guides covering the Canary Islands. It contains nine detailed itineraries and a large number of sites with observation tips. The guide describes the best sites for walking, birdwatching, and finding, butterflies, dragonflies and flowers; geological sites, scuba diving sites, and sites that reveal the unique evolutionary processes on the islands

"[...] In general, this Crossbill Guide is well written and presented, with some very attractive pictures and figures in full colour. The Authors have done a great job in their attempt to update the information on where to find common plants and animals on  Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, despite some clear mistakes. I strongly recommend buying the book when visiting either Lanzarote or Fuerteventura, or both."
– Eduardo Garcia-del-Rey, Ibis Volume 157(4), September 2015

"The first thing to point out is that this is not an identification guide – it does list the wildflowers, birds and other wildlife that occurs on the islands and gives very up-to-date locations and very accurate directions to get you to what you are looking for. I found the guide's mix of history, culture and wildlife refreshing, and making my walks on a family holiday this February much more interesting. There are lots of excellent photographs throughout that show some of the more interesting features and wildlife but you will need additional guides to help with identification as they only cover a few species.

The strength of the book comes in the routes section, where the authors provide 'guided' walks to take in target species. Houbara Bustard was at the top of my wish list and so I undertook route three – the one that would give me the best chance of seeing this amazing bird. The directions were clear, easy to follow and very accurate and pretty much guided me directly onto my first bird, even giving me tips of how to search it out – all-in-all a huge success. If you are planning a visit to either of these islands, don't go without this guide."
