Since the publication of the bestselling first edition of Finding Birds in Ireland in 2007, Ireland's rich birdlife and its habitats have continued to be explored. This second edition captures many new areas that have been discovered as rich birdwatching locations, as well as updating all of those sites described in the first edition. In recent years, access and directions to many sites have changed, while additional species have been recorded at many locations. This new edition includes the very latest information on each and every site.
A comprehensive and beautifully illustrated reference guide, it is a must-have for both experienced and novice birdwatchers. It is also an invaluable guide for visiting birdwatchers, covering almost 550 of the best birdwatching sites in Ireland, north and south.
Organized county by county, this is an easy-to-follow handbook giving the site names, grid references, detailed descriptions and maps for the main sites. It includes the best times to visit each area, a breakdown of the different seasons and the species you are likely to find, and lists rare birds seen at each site in the past.
It will become a well-thumbed addition to any birdwatcher's reference library as well as being a celebratory record of the beauty and rich diversity of birds in Ireland.
