4.0 out of 5 stars A very useful guide... 29 April 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a guide for my first trip to the Algarve.
Although it covers a much broader area there is enough detail on the significant sites in southern Portugal to make it very useful.
The maps and directions are very clear, there are comprehensive lists of species and the areas where they are likely to be seen. There are also useful lists of mammals, amphibians and reptiles as well as local contacts, relevant societies and other sourses of information.
The authors have also given general tourist info covering transport facilities and other bits of local knowledge.
There appears to be very little literature for the wildlife enthusiast visiting the Algarve, so I expected a lot of this book, which, I am happy to say, it delivered.

3.0 out of 5 stars only half the story 19 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this expecting it to help me identify the local bird life. There are no colour pictures and only a few line drawings.

If you want a book that tells you WHERE to see the birds, buy this. If you want a book to help you IDENTIFY them, don't bother

4.0 out of 5 stars Birdwatching in he Algarve 18 May 2011
By John
Format:Paperback
I bought this book this year (2011) despite the fact that it was written some years ago and I was concerned that it would be out of date. Well in some ways it is, of course - not least for prices which predate the Euro.

I didn't get out and about as much as I had hoped to, but in the areas where I did manage to explore I found the book accurate and useful. If someone updates it it could be better, but until then, from my limited experience at least, it's still a very useful book. The directions were clear and the practical advice sound. I can't say overall how accurate the birding information is as I only had the tiniest snapshot of it, but what I saw was in line with what was predicted.

This book is full of relevant and helpful suggestions for anybody thinking of birdwatching in Portugal. Maps and illustrations are quite rudementary, but overall very good value for money.
