North-East Poland: Biebrza, Bialowieza and Wigry
Dirk Hilbers & Bouke Ten Cate
Covers the famous National Parks of Biebrza and Bialowieza, plus the Eastern Masurian Lake district and several less known areas such as Augustow, Wigry NP and Narew NP. Combined they form one of the top destinations for birdwatchers and naturalists alike.
This book describes the flora and fauna, landscape and traditional land use of this region, plus 20 detailed routes and many sites descriptions with concrete indications on where and how to find the birds, wildlife and flora. The Biebrza marshes in North-east Poland are well known as the most pristine lowland river ecosystem. Likewise, Bialowieza National Park is similarly well-known as the last primeval lowland forest left in Europe. These areas together with the many other natural areas nearby, form one gigantic nature-rich region, in which wild bison, wolves and elks roam, and many rare birds, dragonflies, butterflies and wildflowers can be found - and, with this guidebook, be found with relative ease. 256 pages.
