Birding in Lithuania - an information resource..Jos Stratford

Another late summer in Lithuania September 4th-14th, 2006

  • Huge remnants of the temperate mixed forests that once covered Eastern Europe are still preserved, and, last but not least, the Baltic side is well renowned as key site for bird migration, including raptors, pigeons, passerines, waterfowl and others. The idea of combining such birding became clearly exciting...José María Fernández reports

Late Summer in Lithuania 12th-20th August 2006

  • Following an earlier trip to Lithuania, we decided to pay a late summer visit to both originally visited areas and new areas. Highlights included excellent views of Great White Egret, Lesser Spotted Eagle, White-tailed Eagle, Marsh, Hen and Montagu’s Harrier, Little Tern, Little Gull, and migrating passerines...John Perry 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 Lithuania:
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 Lithuania

Vilnius (Bradt City Guide S.)Available direct from Bradt travel guides    
Howard Jarvis and Neil Taylor: Buy from or

  • The ideal pocket sized travel companion for the tourist arriving in Vilnius for a weekend break. Castles, museums and accommodation.

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 traveling 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.
