The Canary Islands are home to many unique birds and others that are easier to find here than anywhere else in the world - if you know here to look...

Dave Gosney writes:

‘‘Even if you’ve been to the Canaries before, the chances are there are several more species that you can see now - and some of the birds you struggled to see before are now much easier. You might decide to visit the islands to catch up on the Houbara Bustards or White-tailed Pigeons you missed before or to take a more careful look at the recently split endemics such as Tenerife Robin, Tenerife Goldcrest and the 4 species of Blue Tit or to finally get to grips with the special seabirds of the islands such as ‘Baroli’s’ Shearwater, White-faced Petrel, Band-rumped Petrel and Bulwer’s Petrel. Whatever your reason, my new book will give you a better chance of finding the birds you’re after”
