Books: Central & Eastern European Wildlife
After decades of relatively little in the way of literature (especially in English) on birds and birding sites in Eastern Europe, recent years has seen a small burst of activity by authors and photographers. Though covering much more than birds my recent book Central and Eastern European Wildlife (Bradt, July 2008. ISBN-10: 1 84162 231 1) should be useful when travelling and birding (or rather wildlife watching) in the region. The book is a visitor's guide and covers Mammals, Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians, Butterflies, Dragonflies, and has sections on Habitats and and brief overviews of 15 countries from the Baltic to the Balkans. It is available directly from Bradt Travel Guides http://www.bradtguides.com/ and elsewhere on the net, as well as in major bookstores. Gerard Gorman.
