This new addition to Dave Gosney's Finding Birds series is based mostly on his observations in Romania in April to June 2019. It replaces his previous book, Finding Birds in Romania, covering all the same sites but now with much more detail and many extra sites too. Many of these are ‘new’ sites that haven’t previously been described in any book. Romania has changed massively since his original book was written in the 1990’s and much of what is written in other publications e.g. by Gorman (2006) and Roberts (2000) is now surprisingly inappropriate, with some top sites becoming rather poor and other ‘new’ sites offering far more birds. This book covers almost all the sites most frequently visited by birders travelling to Romania including all the hot-spots on the Black Sea coast, along the River Danube, in the mountains around Brasov and, of course, in the fabulous Danube Delta.
As ever, all the sites are described in detail with the aid of GPS co-ordinates and Dave’s hand-drawn maps showing exactly where to go for all the birds you might be hoping to find in Romania.
