| Where to Watch Birds in Scotland |
By Mike Madders, Julia Welstead
Scotland is a vast and varied landscape, ranging from mountains and moorland in the highlands to lowland vales, rolling hills and many miles of coastline including rocky indentations, steep sided sea lochs and cliffs, wide estuaries and firths and many off- shore islands. These all give rise to a huge range of habitats for the many differing bird species and birdwatchers can expect to find some of the best and least crowded opportunities for observation in the UK, possibly being rewarded with rare sightings.The book, originally published in 1989, has been updated twice and now contains more than 120 sites accompanied by maps and line drawings.
