The Good Bird Guide
(2005) A birdfinding guide to Britain, Europe & North Africa's most coveted species. Unlike the Where to Watch Birds series, which directs birders to good general birding sites, this guide takes each individual species as a starting point, and picks out the best places to see that species. In this way, a birder can efficiently target those particular species that he wishes to see, making the guide especially useful to those who travel frequently.
Each of the 500 species accounts has information on distribution, habitat and movements, some hints and tips on finding and getting close to the species, and a list of sites in all appropriate countries where that species can reliably be found. The species accounts are followed by a comprehensive, country-by-country gazetteer of the sites covered, with site descriptions and location maps.
Countries/regions covered include: Albania, Algeria, Andorra, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Azores, Balearic Islands, Bay of Biscay, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Canary Islands, Cape Verde Islands, Corsica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Estonia, Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Gibraltar, Great Britain, Greece, Greek Islands, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Macedonia, Madeira, Malta, Moldova, Morocco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Sardinia, Sicily, Slovakia, Spain, Svalbard (Spitsbergen), Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, Yugoslavia (Serbia). 600 pages.
