This is a completely revised and updated guide to birding sites in Mallorca, from Formentor in the north to Cap Ses Salinas in the south with particular emphasis on the areas around Port de Pollenca and the Albufera.

Dave Gosney writes:

‘Finding Birds in Mallorca was the first book I wrote, back in 1992 and was so popular it spawned the rest of the Finding Birds series. Now, 20 years later, it has been completely re-written with new maps and a DVD to go with it. Nowadays Mallorca is visited by fewer birders which is a surprise because its now even better for birds than it used to be, with several new breeding species and at least 3 near-endemic species that are easier to see here than anywhere else in the world - if you have the right book to tell you where to look!’

  1. Covers the Port de Pollenca area in more detail as this is where most visiting birdwatchers choose to stay

  1. Provides exceptionally detailed maps - so you can easily find your way around

  1. Includes GPS co-ordinates to help you find the right turnings, parking spaces or viewing points

  1. Highlights the best areas only - and summarises the key attraction in the first paragraph so you can easily decide whether to read on or bother to visit the site

  1. Has a map on the inside cover which serves as an index so you can easily find any site in the book

  1. Is light and portable (and cheap)

  1. Is supplemented by the site pages in this website (which include photos of many of the locations)

  1. Is updated in the free update pages on this website, giving details of what other birders have found at these sites
