Dave Gosney writes:
‘Varanger fjord is one of the most exciting and popular birding destinations in Europe and yet, until now, there has never been a book that describes exactly where to find its best birds. With this book you will stand a much better chance of finding the rarer species and locating the best places for taking really good photos of the birds, not just in Arctic Norway but also in those parts of Finland north of the Arctic Circle’
