About this book

This book is a birdfinding guide to Britain and Europe's most coveted species. It takes each individual species as a starting point, and picks out the best places to see that species. In this way, a birder can efficiently target those particular species that he wishes to see, making the guide especially useful to those who travel frequently.
Each of the 500 species accounts has information on distribution, habitats and movements, some hints and tips on finding and getting close to the species, and a list of sites in all appropriate countries where that species can reliably be found. The species accounts are followed by a comprehensive, country-by-country gazetteer of the sites covered, with site descriptions and location maps.

Packed with useful information and much to enjoy and discover. Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust 'a good starting point for tracking down elusive species' BTO News 'Anyone with a Western Palearctic list or anyone contemplating birding in the region should invest in this book.' Bird Watching
