New book: Birding hotspots in Andalusia - Huelva province

"Birding hotspots in Andalusia - Huelva province" is now available.

This book is aimed at all those who would like to watch birds in western Andalusia and don't know where to start. It contains a description of some of the best locations for watching birds in the Huelva province, including the western half of Do˝ana, Odiel marshes, El Portil lagoon, Isla Cristina saltpans and many other places.

Well done Gonšalo! My old stomping grounds still go out there once in a while. Great spots for Pin-tailed Sandgrouse, Western Olivaceous Warbler and Lesser Short-toed Lark and others not easy in Portugal.

Thanks Simon, indeed Huelva has several great birding hotspots, however for the species you mention I think that they are somewhat easier in the nearby Seville province. I should point out that much of Do˝ana park belongs to Seville.

"My bad", I misled myself thinking of the western side of the Guadalquivir, rather than one province or another. Still, Do˝ana is almost of a patriotic nature to me, fell in love with Andalucia and its people in the early 80s and 90s and it took me a few visits to get confident around Do˝ana and nearby. So I'm sure your new guidebook will be very useful to many. I'm often surprised how visiting birders to Do˝ana itself seem often to miss out on the species I mentioned above, even the sandgrouse, which although sometimes a bit hit and miss are usually reliable.

Looks interesting! Is there a sample page/list of contents available online? I'll be away shortly but will probably get a copy in the new year. Is the guide's title meant to suggest that further volumes are in preparation on the rest of Andalucia?

I am currently evaluating that possibility. Not necessarily for the whole of Andalusia because the eastern provinces are a bit far away for me, but I am considering at least Seville and maybe one or two more provinces.
