Also includes additional useful information on planning a trip, such as travel, climate and clothing, health and medical facilities.

Provides the travelling birdwatcher with all the information he or she will need to make the most of a birdwatching holiday or tour. The guides are researched and compiled by expert birdwatchers with outstanding knowledge of the birdlife of the particular region or country.

Contains a comprehensive and up-to-date site by site list of the major, and many minor, areas of interest to birdwatchers. Each main site entry includes a map, information on permits and access restrictions, guidance on best visiting times and seasonal variations, and a list of the more interesting species which can normally be seen. Wherever possible mention is made of the other interesting wildlife at each site.

Each guide includes a selective bird list giving brief details on distribution and status of the uncommon birds which may be found, cross-referenced to site information, and a full species list for the region or country. Checklists of other wildlife are also provided when possible.

Other features include pre-tour information; transport details and advice; information on climate, clothing, food, accommodation, health, and medical and financial facilities. Care is taken to advise travellers of regulations and prohibitions which could adversely affect the trip. 110 pages.
