Winner of The Royal Society of Literature Jerwood Award for Non-Fiction in 2011 and the Authors' Foundation Roger Deakin Award in 2011.
A book about how raptors and the landscapes they live in have possessed the author; “My eyes are always quivering for birds of prey. I have always been turned to their presence”.
(retrieved from Amazon Sat, 20 Feb 2016 16:09:57 -0500)
Of all the birds of the British Isles, the raptor reigns supreme, sparking the imagination like no other. In this magnificent hymn to these beautiful animals, James Macdonald Lockhart explores all fifteen breeding birds of prey on these shores--from the hen harrier swimming over the land in the dregs of a May gale on Orkney, to the ghostly sparrowhawk displaying in the fields around his home in Warwickshire.
