In a much-anticipated volume on one of Britain’s most fascinating group of birds, Richard Sale draws on a wealth of experience and research, providing a comprehensive natural history of the four British breeding falcons.

Reviews

‘One of the best New Naturalists on birds, and one that is likely to remain the last word on British falcons for a long time.’ British Wildlife

‘An in-depth, rigorous analysis of the four British breeding falcons […]. A must for the bookshelves of any raptor-loving hardened ornithologist.’ Bird Watching

‘A wonderful addition to the remarkable New Naturalist Library. […] we get the benefit of Richard Sale’s own vital research, especially in a fascinating chapter on the birds’ hunting techniques.’ BBC Wildlife
