This DVD introduces you to the best birdwatching sites in northern Goa and gives you a real ‘feel’ for what it’s like to go there.
The best sites - covers all the best-known birding sites north of the Zuari river, including Bondla, the Backwoods camp and the areas around Baga
The best birds - sit back and enjoy footage of over 140 species, including many of the specialities, all filmed using high-definition digital video cameras
The best information - find out more about the sites and their birds, including what to listen for, to help you find more species
Join British birder, Dave Gosney, on his visit to Goa in search of fabulous birds such as Indian Pitta, Malabar Trogon, Sri Lankan Frogmouth, White-rumped Shama, Racket-tailed Drongo, Oriental Dwarf Kingfisher and many more. You’ll see footage of all the most exciting species, you’ll get an idea of what each of the sites is like... and we think you’ll also have a laugh or two as the story unfolds.
Total running time: 1 hour and 35 minutes

Dave Gosney writes:
‘It’s now over 14 years since Peter Harris published his ‘Independant Birder’s Guide to Goa’ and much has changed since then. In particular there has been an explosion of information available on trip reports on the internet but you could literally spend days going through this material , trying to make sense of it all. I’ve therefore written this guide, based mostly on my visits in 2008 and 2009, which updates this information and puts it all in one place, in a format you can easily take with you’.

•Is complemented by a DVD showing you exactly what it’s like to go birding in many of these sites
