    Hello,
    I am wondering if you have any plans to do a book on Brittany. Although much of the area seems to be taken up by agriculture there does seem to be more of interest to the amateur naturalist.
    Possibly the area doesn’t fit your criteria for a book but I thought I would ask anyway.
    If it was half as good as ( I haven’t got them all) the other books in the series that I’ve read then it would be of great interest to me.

    King regards,

    George Corner

      Dear George,

      Thank you very much for your kind words about the Crossbill Guides! Unfortunately, we have no concrete plans for Brittany yet. The area definitely fits the criteria for making a Crossbill Guide (especialy the diverse coastline and the islands off shore are excellent). So it is not the area, just that it takes time and resources to produce these books, and there are more areas than we can work on. Currently we are focussing on Tuscany, Southern Morocco and the Bulgarian Rhodopes, and we’ll starting books on areas in the UK as well.

      Kind regards,

    I’m specially looking forward the release of the guide “Val d’ Aosta & Gran Paradiso” It would be like filling the long existing gap in guides covering mountainous landscapes, specially the Alps.

    Dear,
    How much is it certain that the deadlne of feb ’24 will be reached/repsectec for the Tuscany book? We’ve planned a trip in early spring and the information would be welcome….
    Thanks!

      Dear Wouter,

      Thanks for you message. As the book manuscript is progressing, it becomes increasingly clear that we’ll be needing a bit more time to finish it, so the book will not be out in february yet. We haven’t set a new date yet, but I expect it to be towards the summer of ’24. However, we can put you in contact with the author, who is probably able to give you some advise.

      Kind regards,

      Dirk / the Crossbill team

    Dear,
    The Italy Aosta and gran paradiso was announced a few years ago, but is not on the upcoming list anymore. Are there still plans for a Crossbill guide for this region, and what can be the year to finish please ?

    1. Dirk Hilbers says:

      Dear Igor,

      Thanks for your message. Indeed, the Aosta and Gran Paradiso book is on hold for the moment, unfortunately. This does not mean it is cancelled, but the delay is such that we have no date set for its release. We hope to be able to restart this project in the upcoming years and will publish a new release dat in our newsletters as soon as we have one.
      Kind regards,
      Dirk Hilbers / the Crossbill Guides team
