Birds of Cyprus by Colin Richardson &Richard Porter

Helm Field Guide, 256 pages Price £30.00

This is the first comprehensive field guide of its kind to cover the whole island of Cyprus with more than 400 [405!] species with 95 colour plates. Not only is an identification book but a ‘where to watch’ book as well covering the best birding sites as well as the best habitats to see them. The breeding birds can be around 95 species with some found nowhere else in the world like the Cyprus Pied Wheatear and the Cyprus Warbler. Selling bird watching to locals and tourists can help to protect rare species/habitats and show how incomes can be made ‘out of season’ for many people involved with wildlife tourism.
