South-west Turkey is the sort of place where you can go on a family holiday and still see great birds such as White-throated Robin, Red-fronted Serin and Brown Fish Owl.
Dave Gosney writes:
‘‘I once heard that more Brits go on holiday to Turkey than to Spain. Most of them will stay at one of the many tourist resorts around the south-west coast. If they do, they’ll have a chance of seeing some fantastic birds and this book is designed to direct them to the best birding sites both around the resorts but also within a day’s drive inland”.
Compared to other publications covering the same area, this one:
* Covers exact details of where to find birds so you can easily find your way to the best bits of wetland, plain or woodland
* Is more up-to-date, based on recent trips
* Has maps which are exactly to scale - if the map suggests it’s 500 metres, that’s how far it will be
* 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
* 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
