Southern Iberia is in the top rank of European birding hotspots, and the fourth edition of this popular book, first published in 1994, continues to ensure that visitors can make the most of the region's many attractions. The information on all sites has been brought right up-to-date, with revised maps and full updated site access details and species lists. Popular localities such as Donana, Monfrague and the Strait of Gibraltar get prominent treatment, but the reader is encouraged to wander further afield to visit other, less well-known but equally rewarding sites, including a number of additional localities that are new to this edition. This new edition is indispensable for all birders visiting this remarkable corner of Spain.
Gibraltarian Ernest Garcia and Torremolinos-resident Andy Paterson have spent many years living and travelling in the region. Both authors have completed long periods as members of the Iberian Peninsula Rarities committee.
