Birding in Paradise: The Caribbean Emerald Isle of Montserrat

UK-based non-government organisation, the UK Overseas Territories Conservation Forum, has for over 20 years been involved in projects on Montserrat. Together with the Montserrat National Trust and Scriber Adventure Tours this booklet describes where to see birds and view some of the other natural and cultural heritage features of the island.

Proceeds from each download will go towards conservation of the wildlife and habitats of this special place.

The book has over 90 pages, with full colour maps and photos. It contains:
  • Forewords by the Honorable Minister Claude Hogan and the Director of the Monserrat National Trust Mrs Sarita Francis OBE.
  • Note about supporting conservation of the natural and cultural heritage.
  • Introduction about the purpose and nature of the booklet.
  • Practical information about getting there and facilities etc.
  • Heritage and wildlife tours around various parts of the island, in total covering most of the island. Mostly this is a driving route (with some optional bits of walking) linked to the trail map.
  • Maps of the island, showing recommended routes and main features.
  • Sections on visiting some special features of the island.
  • Fully illustrated sections on the woodland birds, open-country birds, other land birds, seabirds and water-birds of the island.

Review by MC July 2016:

"I have to say that I was as impressed with this birding and nature guide as I was with those covering the Turks and Caicos Islands. You certainly pack a lot of information in to such a small publication, and it is extremely well illustrated! Added to that, the design and printing help to make it very readable, even if you are not a 'twitcher’. Well done to all concerned.”
