The UAE is an increasingly popular tourist destination, with a good infrastructure for visitors. This new field guide is based on the bestselling Birds of the Middle East (2nd edition) and covers all the birds of these Gulf states. The new text written by Simon Aspinall and Richard Porter is specific to the Gulf, and new maps are provided for all breeding birds and regular visitors. The plates are recomposed from Birds of the Middle East, with three extra plates of introduced species.

Review quote

stands as a tribute to both [Simon Aspinall's] courage in the face of adversity and his enthusiasm for and knowledge of Middle Eastern birds... this is the field guide to take with you you on your next trip. -- Colin Richardson * Birdwatch * the ideal size for anyone with a few days to spend in the UAE (or elsewhere in the Arabian Peninsula). It is undoubtedly also a valuable reference for resident birdwatchers and longer-term visitors, being enhanced with useful, country-specific information. * British Birds *

About Simon Aspinall

Aspinall has lived in the UAE since 1993, pursuing his professional
interests in conservation and ecology throughout the Middle East and
Caucasus. He has published extensively on natural history, especially
within Arabia and with an emphasis on birds; traveling widely in that
quest he has probably seen more species in the region than any other
modern-day birder. Richard Porter has been involved with birds in the Middle East since
1966 and is
an adviser on bird conservation for BirdLife International. He is the
author or co-author of several books on the Middle East and the
groundbreaking Flight Identification of European Raptors. John Gale, Mike Langman and Brian Small are
world-renowned bird illustrators with many books to their credit.
