This authoritative guide addresses the need for a detailed book on birdwatching in SW Turkey while also incorporating interesting day walks in areas notable not only for birds but other natural and cultural aspects.
The book begins with short chapters on preparations & practicalities for travellers, archaeology and an introduction to the region's natural history.
Sixteen walks are described in the regions of Fethiye, the Kaya Peninsula and Baba Dag. No reliable detailed maps of turkey are available to the public, so the comprehensive walk descriptions are complemented by the author's own sketch maps.
The subsequent section on birdwatching sites concentrates on areas around Fethiye & Calis, Patara, Girdev, The Bodrum area, Bafa Lake and the Big Menderes delta. Species lists and notes on the habitats are provided for each site, also more maps.
Appendices present bird check lists, a glossary, architectural terms, useful Turkish vocabulary for visitors, a bibliography and a selection of colour photographs.
Written by a freelance ornithologist, resident in Turkey since 1996.
