try...Birdwatching Guide to Mallorca by the late Graham Hearl.
ISBN 09522019 76

It's a bit dated but is still good

also try the Gosney guide to Finding Birds in Mallorca from Birdguides

Agreed - it's still the best.

Also worth trying a "google" search on "Mallorca" (or Majorca) & "bird report" - you'll find loads of reports with plenty of tips as to where to go and what to see.

Agree about Graham Hearl's book - we found it very good this Easter.

Sorry I missed your question on Mallorca Birding. One of the best sites I found to answer any Majorca queries is www.burbagebirders.co.uk. Check out their Majorca Holidays page ,it's all on there Keep On Birding Ken R

As a rider to this thread does anyone know if GOB are still in existence? They had been at Bird Fairs in the past but not this year.

Smile GOB is barely alive!

Yes Alf the GOB is still alive although it's profile has been greatly reduced since the loss of Graham Hearl. Fancy taking over the position??

Other than the fact that I live in Yorkshire, speak 200 words of Spanish and visit Mallorca only every other year there is no reason why not!!

Seriously this should be a role for a native Mallorquin don't you think?

Does anyone know whether the Mallorca Bird Report is still produced ? A gentleman called Mark Thompson used to send it out, but I have seen no reference since 2001.
