‘This is much more than just an update of my previous book, ‘Finding Birds in Northern Spain’. Compared to that book, this one covers a much smaller area - from the mountains of the Picos de Europa to the plains of Lleida - in even more detail than before. it is based largely on recent visits to the area in 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010 and is full of first-hand observations showing eaxactly where I found the best birds.’
Compared to other publications covering the same area, this one:
•Provides the most detailed maps - showing, for example, exactly which rocks are visited by Wallcreepers
•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
•Is complemented by a DVD showing you exactly what it’s like to go birding in many of these sites
