Hi, I’m Dave Gosney, the author of the Finding Birds in series of books. My mission is to produce books and DVDs to give you the best possible chance of finding your most wanted birds when you go birding abroad.

‘Proper birders don’t bother with any other guide, if Dave has produced one, look no further!”
