Over 250 major sites are treated in this book, and many more in passing from Iceland across Europe through Georgia to Ussuriland in southeast Russia. Countries, archipelagos and islands are treated alphabetically, the introduction to each being accompanied by a map showing major routes and the distribution of sites. Each site account lists the birds to be seen and how and where to find them, particularly the specialities, and there is also information on other wildlife and tips on finding accommodation. There is a general introduction to the region, a list of useful addresses to aid in planning and researching a trip as well as a site index and, most importantly, a species index which will enable readers to pinpoint the birds they most want to see.
