This excellent books covers the beautiful and ever popular Forest of Bowland. There is something for every age, ability, preference and season. It is filled with wonderful photography throughout. There is an excellent bird reference section, filled with interesting species information. This book is now in its third edition.


The county of Lancashire has at its heart a real gem. Boasting fells, marshes, moorland, rivers, rich woodlands and ancient picturesque settlements, the Forest of Bowland provides a wonderful variety of habitats for an amazing array of birds, some of them rare.

Little wonder, then, that local authors David Hindle and John Wilson developed such a passion for exploring the area, and decided to write a book. Birdwatching Walks in Bowland, now in its third edition, reveals the many treasures on offer that can be enjoyed by all. Readers can choose from over 30 lovely routes, all with straightforward directions, easy-to-follow maps and useful birding tips.

  1. John Weld-Blundell, Lord of the Manor of Chipping

    “This book is the culmination of years of research and hard work on a subject about which the co-authors, David Hindle and John Wilson, are clearly so knowledgeable and completely passionate. David is the author of twelve books on local history, while John was the first warden of the famous RSPB Leighton Moss Nature Reserve at Silverdale . . . David and John’s book is a reflection of their deep affection for nature . . . Perhaps more importantly, it offers the opportunity for any of us to link a wonderful walk with the nature that lives there.”
