Where to Watch Birds in the Western Spanish Pyrenees

After a short introduction, this loose-leaf booklet launches into the site details. The sites covered include the Aragon Valley, Tena Valley, Hecho Valley, San Juan de la Pena, Zuriza and Upper Roncal Valley.

Each site has a short introduction. This is followed by access details and route descriptions. The maps, however, would be clearer if printed in colour.

The last pages are a list of bird species with an indication of their status within the region.

In summary, this is a basic site guide that will direct you to the right areas to enable you to search for the desirable birds in this part of the Pyrenees. It could easily be improved with an index and staples to hold the pages together.
