About this book

This book gives precise details on how to find the most exciting birds in Poland

Dave Gosney writes:
‘‘If you want to see Aquatic Warbler in Europe, then, realistically, Poland is now your only hope, since populations in Hungary, Germany and Lithuania have declined so much, perhaps to extinction. In Poland however, I still found them at several sites as detailed in this book. Of course Eastern Poland has many other great birds too such as Spotted Eagle, Great Snipe, White-winged Black Tern, Pygmy Owl and a fantastic diversity of warblers, flycatchers and woodpeckers, not to mention mountain birds such as Wallcreeper and Alpine Accentor. This book sends you to the best places in the Biebrza marshes, the Bialowieza forest and the Tatra mountains to find all these birds.”

Compared to other publications covering the same area, this one:
- Provides the most useful maps – so you can easily find your way to the best bits of wetland, steppe or woodland
- Includes GPS co-ordinates to help you find the right turnings, parking spaces or viewing points
- Highlights the best areas only – and summarises the key attraction in the first paragraph so you can easily decide whether to read on or bother to visit the site
- Has a map on the inside cover which serves as an index so you can easily find any site in the book
- Is light and portable (and cheap)
- Is supplemented by the site pages in Dave Gosney's website (which include photos of many of the locations)
- Is updated in the free update pages on Dave Gosney's website, giving details of what other birders have found at these sites
- Is complemented by a DVD showing you exactly what it’s like to go birding in many of these sites

"[...] As always, Dave's instructions are clear and his video commentary is relevant and informative. Over 70 species of birds are featured with high-definition digital video footage. The booklet features all of these sites and is full of maps, GPS references for specific species and tips for getting the best results."
