This book is a comprehensive update to the ever-popular Finding Birds in Southern Portugal.
Dave Gosney writes:
''In the last 12 months I've been back to Portugal 3 times, checking and re-checking the information in my previous book, trying out new sites and, of course, filming the birds for the forthcoming DVD. As a result I have re-written the original book and redrawn the maps making it more up-to-date and more detailed than ever. Anyone
going to the Algarve can use this book to help them find more birds - and birders who want to explore the areas around Lisbon will find this book invaluable too.'
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, plain 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)
The Tejo estuary - right next to Lisbon and yet home to thousands of birds in winter
