This book gives birdwatchers a much better chance of finding Estonia’s most exciting species

Dave Gosney writes:

‘In 2010 I made my second trip to Estonia and once again I couldn’t believe how good it was for birds. Hundreds of thousands of birds migrate through the country in April and May, providing unique birding experiences, and species such as Great Snipe, Citrine Wagtail, Hazel Grouse and White-backed Woodpecker are probably easier to see here than anywhere else in Europe - if you know where to look. This book is full of detailed notes and maps explaining where to find all the best birds, including just about all the sites used by tour leaders plus a few special locations such as ‘Gosney’s magic corner!’ ’
