Where to Watch Birds in Southern and Western Spain: Andalucaia, Extremadura and Gibraltar (Where to Watch Birds)

Southern Iberia is in the top rank of European birding hotspots. The third edition of this popular book, first published in 1994, continues to ensure that visitors can make the most of the region’s many attractions. Regular visits have brought the information on all sites up-to-date: maps, access details and species lists have received particular attention. Popular localities such as Donana, Monfrague and the Strait of Gibraltar get prominent treatment but the reader is encouraged to wander further afield to visit other, less well-known but rewarding sites
The author encapsulates in this book a huge amount of his detailed knowledge of the subject, gained during years as a birdwatching guide in the region. A large number of sites are covered from Almería in the East to Gibraltar and Tarifa in the West and embracing the Costa del Sol and many inland areas such as Álora and Ronda.  Every site is covered in detail with specific instructions on how to get there, which parts of the site to visit, excellent maps and bird lists for different times of the year.
