Hi, I’m Dave Gosney, the author of the Finding Birds in series of books. I‘ve been re-writing the books and producing DVDs to go with them to give you an even better idea of where and how to find the best birds when you go birding abroad.

“No one should contemplate their birding trip without checking to see if Dave has been there and written the booklet or made the film.                If he has, buy it!”
