As we have announced before, Lars Svensson will be one of the guest stars of this year’s Delta Birding Festival. With almost 80 years, he is one of the most recognised ornithologist of the world thanks to his books Identification Guide to the European Passerines, the Bible of ringers, and Collins Bird Guide. The most Complete guide to the birds of Britain and Europe, considered the best field guide of birds.
The Institut Català d’Ornitologia, originally founded as Grup Català d’Anellament (Catalan Ringer Group), and therefore great admirer of Svensson’s work, will honour the author making him honorary member of the Institution.
All the amateur and expert birders and ringers probably have on their shelves one of his books, considered essential in the birding world. Don’t forget to bring them with you when you come to the DBF, you’ll have the opportunity to have your book signed!
