Crossbill Guides is a series of attractively produced nature travel guides on major European natural areas. This new title in the Crossbill Guides series covers Southern Portugal from Lisbon to the Algarve. Like all other Crossbill Guides, this title poses and answers two key questions: what makes this area so special and how you can experience this uniqueness for yourself. This book describes the flora and fauna, landscape and traditional land use of this region plus 21 detailed routes and around 50 sites with specific suggestions on where and how to find the birds, wildlife and flora. Southern Portugal is a superb and rich wildlife destination. The Algarve province and its northern neighbour the Alentejo has a highly diverse landscape from the cliffs, dunes and tidal marshes on the coast to the extensive oak pastures, steppes and rocky hills in the interior. Whether you enjoy birdwatching, searching for orchids or simply a pleasant ramble through a flower-dotted landscape, southern Portugal is a great destination at any season.

The Kuusamo area : South-east of Lapland lies the small town of Kuusamo. The land surrounding this town is surrounded by taiga, peatlands, lakes and meadows - not unlike southern Lapland. However, the hilly landscape, the calcareous soils and the old mossy spruce forests support a slightly different (and very rich) flora and fauna. For this reason, the Kuusamo area is included in our Crossbill Guide to Finnish Lapland.

Andalucía is a region of contrast. There are wild mountains and extensive marshes, dry semi-desert and barren karst, but also leafy woodlands laced with murmuring streams. The biodiversity is the highest of any of the Spanish regions. Andalucía is the stronghold of the endangered Iberian Lynx. Herds of wild Ibex roam the mountains and large numbers of vultures and eagles nest on remote, precipitous cliffs. In the wind-beaten dune scrub, the Mediterranean Chameleon shelters, while huge numbers of waterfowl feed in the marshes. Each corner of this, the largest of Spain's autonomous regions, is different, but all share one characteristic - they all have jewels of natural areas that for one reason or another stand out among all others. Andalucía is too large and diverse to do it justice in a single guidebook. This book covers the western half - roughly the provinces of Huelva, Seville, Cádiz and Málaga. Like all other Crossbill Guide, it answers two questions: what makes this area so special, and how you can see this for yourself. The book describes the flora and fauna, landscape and traditional land use of this region, plus 18 detailed routes and 28 sites covering Coto Doñana, Cádiz and the strait of Gibraltar, Alcornocales, and Sierra de Grazalema, to name a few, with concrete indications on where and how to find the birds, wildlife and flora.
