About this book

The second edition of this essential guide to finding birds in France is fully revised and updated and covers 337 sites in detail.

France offers perhaps the greatest diversity of habitats of any European country, with the peaks and foothills of the Alps and Pyrenees, the spectacular expansive wetlands of the Camargue, important seabird colonies on cliffs and offshore islands in the northwest, and large areas of low-intensity farmland and unspoilt forest in the interior. This guide opens up the best of birding in France to birders living in or visiting any part of the country. The site accounts are arranged in a formula which will be familiar to readers of the Where to Watch Birds series - each is described in terms of key habitats, the species to be found there, details of access, and advice on when best to time a visit. There are detailed maps for many sites, and the book is enlivened with many attractive line illustrations.
