Poland is the most obvious destination in Europe to watch and listen to the Aquatic Warbler. Forests and coppices provide shelter for all species of European woodpecker. Wetlands are an important stopover point for migrating waders, geese and other water and wetland birds, while wet meadows are a perfect location to hear the rasping Corn Crake. The population of the White Stork in Poland is counted amongst the largest in Europe.
Birding in Poland is both for those planning a longer birdwatching trip to Poland and for those visiting bigger cities for business, with only a few hours or half a day to spare for birdwatching. For them, we have described in more detail the sites in Warsaw and Krakow - the two cities probably most often visited by foreigners. We have also included descriptions of sites near other cities, such as Lodz, Poznan, Wroclaw, Gdansk, Bialystok, Bydgoszcz, Lublin and Rzeszow.
The authors are 46 ornithologists, birdwatchers, and local avifauna experts from Poland. This book provides a description of 119 sites and 164 maps. It includes such famous sites as the Bialowieza Forest, the Biebrza River Valley and the Warta River Mouth, but also other sites, probably unknown but definitely worth visiting.
The book also includes a general description of avifauna in Poland, practical tips on birdwatching and travelling around, a chapter on the legal aspects of birdwatching and two articles on Aquatic Warbler and White Stork, as well as photos of typical habitats and a checklist of the birds of Poland.
Text in English. 20 pages of color photos of habitats.
