Dave Gosney writes:

‘This is like an updated version of my previous book Finding Birds in Finland which has been much sought after despite being out of print for many years. It describes all the most exciting birding places in Finland south of the Arctic Circle from Helsinki to Kuusamo – the areas further north are included in Finding Birds in Lapland. Many of Finland’s birds, especially the owls, move around from year to year so it’s hard to give specific sites but this book gives really detailed directions for how to find many of the other Finnish specialities’

Unique features

Compared to other publications covering the same area, this one:

  • Provides the most detailed maps – so you can
    easily find your way to the best bits of woodland, tundra or shoreline
  • 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 (and cheap)
  • Is updated via this website (which includes
    photos of many sites)
  • Is complemented by a DVD showing you exactly
    what it’s like to og birding in many of these sites
