This book gives precise details on how to find the most exciting birds in the Camargue, the French Alps, the French Pyrenees, the Cevennes and other sites too

Dave Gosney writes:

‘‘There are lots of exciting birds that are worth searching for in the south of France - but what are your chances of actually seeing them? For this book I ‘road-tested’ dozens of locations, many of which were supposed to be known sites for particular species, to find out whether the birds are still there. Many terrific birds were found, a few were missed but others have almost certainly disappeared. This book, then, gives you precise details of exactly where birds such as Wallcreeper, Lammergeier, Rock Partridge, Little Bustard, Calandra Lark, Western Orphean Warbler, Moustached Warbler and Rock Thrush can still be found or, in some cases, where to look if you want to search for the birds I didn’t see.”

One reader has written to say:

thank you for leading me to the exact right place for Rock Thrush (a bird I have been chasing for over 30 years in Mallorca etc.)”
