Estonia and Latvia
June 2011

  • Estonia and Latvia are really great countries for birding: there are superb and unspoiled wild places where Corncrake, Thrush Nightingale, Common Rosefinch, Marsh, River, Grasshopper and Icterine Warblers are amazingly common...Ernesto Occhiato reports.

The Baltic Coast of Lithuania and Latvia 9th April – 17th April 2004

  • The Baltic coastline of Lithuania and Latvia offers hundreds of kilometres of relatively underwatched areas of migration, and with both countries now being fully accessible and also developing an infrastructure for tourism, we decided to spend the Easter break undertaking what was essentially a 'reconnaissance' visit....John Perry reports

Some Useful bird books for Latvia:
Do you have a good book for this region that we haven't featured? let us know


Collins Bird Guide
Lars Svensson et al: Buy from or

  • Described by some as the best field guide in the world, and 15 years in the making. Has it been Worth the Wait?...Yes definately! If you buy just 1 book a year then make sure that its this one. Stunning drawings by the worlds finest bird illustrators..and it shows..check out the plates on tern, Skuas, and the Ducks...not forgetting the Finches and Crossbills.

The Complete Guide to the Birdlife of Britain & Europe
Rob Hume, Peter Hayman (Illustrator): Buy from

  • This is quite simply the best illustrated guide to Europe's birds that I have seen. Every bird is pictured at least five times (and sometimes twenty times) in varying poses within its habitat. Seeing the birds in context, really gives this book the edge.
    The text , written by an expert, is concise, thorough and up to date. Many of the recent splits are included. The likes of Yelkouan Shearwater and Southern Grey Shrike are illustrated superbly for perhaps the first time in any recent guide.
    More than a field guide, the book is coffee table size, and certainly deserves to be in the collection of every serious bird watcher.

Recommended Travel books for Latvia

Lonely Planet Estonia,Latvia and Lithuania
John Noble, et al: Buy from or

  • Having found so little in the way of information about the Baltic States we were very reliant upon this book when travelling in Latvia. Each Baltic state has its own feel - bargains can be found in Estonia, Latvia boasts coastal resorts, uncrowded castles and palaces, and Lithuania has vast tracts of unspoiled forest. This guide covers these areas, in addition to the Kaliningrad region only recently re-opened to tourists.
