Finding Birds in South Portugal
2013. Completely revised edition. This book is now more complete than ever, thanks to the addition of a 9-page supplement based on a visit made in March 2009. Dave Gosney writes:
"The purpose of my 2009 trip was to visit new sites that I'd read about either in articles in Birding World or in the 'Summer Birding in the Algarve' guide by Jon Hardacre and give them 'the Gosney treatment'. Details of these 'new' sites (and more precise information on one of the 'old' sites) have been added to the original book in the form of a 9-page supplement. This includes new detailed maps for these areas so you can find them more easily than I did!"
The text and maps of the original book have remained unaltered, so this is not a complete update.
The new sites covered are:
And there are some additional notes, mostly navigational, on Castro Marim, Carcavelo, Ludo Farm, Airport Waterworks and Entradas.
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. A map on the inside cover serves as an index so you can easily find any site in the book. Supplementary site details, including photographs are available as web-pages and a free app (various platforms including iOS, Android and Blackberry) provides details of what other birders have found at these sites. 40 pages.
