Finding Birds in Lapland – The DVD | By Dave Gosney | DVD | 76 minutes | Easybirder 2010 | ISBN 9781907316241
The DVD also covers those parts of Finland and Norway that are north of the Arctic Circle. This DVD features close-up footage of most of the special birds of Arctic Scandinavia and Dave Gosney’s usual quiet and competent description of the birds, localities and his experiences.
I’ve probably said it all before as I like Dave’s films and books and especially how the two tie together with a note on the screen to refer you to the appropriate book page. Moreover, I always learn something from the films, not just about the places he makes them but snippets about ID or behaviour – such gentle exchange of info is what birding should be all about.
