Dave Gosney writes: ‘‘If you want to see Aquatic Warbler in Europe, then, realistically, Poland is now your only hope, since populations in Hungary, Germany and Lithuania have declined so much, perhaps to extinction. In Poland however, I still found them at several sites as detailed in this book. Of course Eastern Poland has many other great birds too such as Spotted Eagle, Great Snipe, White-winged Black Tern, Pygmy Owl and a fantastic diversity of warblers, flycatchers and woodpeckers, not to mention mountain birds such as Wallcreeper and Alpine Accentor. This book sends you to the best places in the Biebrza marshes, the Bialowieza forest and the Tatra mountains to find all these birds.”
