'Birdwatching in Northern Greece - a site guide. 

Second edition.'

ISBN 978-0956777003

Going birdwatching in Greece? You need this book!

It is the most detailed and up-to-date guide available for the area.

Dave Gosney writes, 'I found this book to be really useful on my last trip to northern Greece. It’s an area I’d already visited many times but this book introduced me to several new and fantastic sites, described in the sort of idiot-proof detail that I also apply to my own titles. Without it I would have missed out on several really good birds. Oh, and by the way, northern Greece was just FANTASTIC for birds. I’d forgotten just how good it was. So many great sites.'

This extensive 174-page book, published in 2011, contains up-to-date information on all major sites in Northern Greece.

The new edition has:

  • 75% more pages
  • revised, extended and updated sections on Lake Kerkini, Evros Delta, Porto Lagos, Nestos, Lake Ismarida and Dadia Forest
  • new sites included for the first time such as the Amvrakikos Gulf, Kalamas Delta, Prespa Lakes and Mount Paggeo
  • detailed maps and descriptions of the areas around Thessaloniki, including the Axios-Aliakmon-Loudias region, Alikes Kitrous, Nea Agathoupoli and (on the eastern shore) Angelohori and the Epanomi lagoons
  • 8 more sites in the Kerkini area and new sites in the Evros Hills
  • more general information on lots of other sites, including Mount Olympus, Lake Karla, the Rodopi and Pindos Mountains
  • more detailed maps and directions throughout
  • GPS (Global Positioning System) data to be used by those with SAT NAVs or GPS equipment, such as those on mobile phones

This extensive 174-page book, published in 2011, is the only book to have! The entry for each site includes detailed directions, updated maps and reliable info on what you might see, when and where. There is a current status list for birds of the region, a checklist of birds of Greece and colour photos of the region's speciality species.

Steve Mills has been visiting these areas for over 20 years, at different times of year, and has a wealth of experience to draw upon.

Comments on the second edition of the book:

'One major change since our last trip in 2006 is the amount of good quality information now available on the birds of the area. This is due almost entirely to the efforts of Steve Mills and Hilary Koll, founders of BirdWING and authors of the indispensable Birdwatching in Northern Greece.' Ian Kinley

'Thank you for an excellent site guide. A group of seven of us have just returned from a 5 day trip to Kerkini using your site guide. I have been deputized to contact you to say our collective view after over 100 foreign birding trips between us is that it is one of the best we have ever come across. In our short four and a half days of birding we saw 166 species which, given we were a couple of weeks "early" for peak migration was above our expectations.' Michael Miles

'My family and I have recently returned from a wonderful week's Easter holiday in Northern Greece. We visited Kerkini, Dadia and the Evros Delta. Your book "Birdwatching in Northern Greece" was invaluable. It was very helpful to be advised exactly where to go and which birds we could expect to see. Thank you very much.' Sarah Pinnegar Scaramangas and family

'Your book was a massive help and I'm sure will be on future trips.' Best regards, Pete

'Your book was a major factor in the success of the trip, many thanks.' Best wishes, Stephen Cameron
