The Birds of Hungary
I was reminded today that my book The Birds of Hungary was published in 1996. How time has flown. I remembered this because I recieved a royalty statement in the post... yes, folks are still buying the book. I wrote the book in 1995 and Christopher Helm (A&C Black, London) brought it out a year later. Now I suggest that all you birders coming out here to Hungary this year go and buy it. The usual bird book dealers in the UK sell it (Wildsounds, NHBS, Subbuteo, etc) and it can also be purchased via Amazon and other internet stores. By the way, it is a status handbook, not a site guide. Plugging myself ? Plugging my own book ? Well, someone has to !
