Produsentens informasjon

Completely re-written book now available

This book is a comprehensive update to the ever-popular Finding Birds in Southern Portugal.

Dave Gosney writes:
»In the last 12 months I’ve been back to Portugal 3 times, checking and re-checking the information in my previous book, trying out new sites and, of course, filming the birds for the forthcoming DVD. As a result I have re-written the original book and redrawn the maps making it more up-to-date and more detailed than ever. Anyone
going to the Algarve can use this book to help them find more birds – and birders who want to explore the areas around Lisbon will find this book invaluable too.’
