Fine book about a magnificent bird,
This review is from: Looking for the Goshawk (Kindle Edition)
The goshawk is without doubt our most elusive and mysterious bird of prey - rarely seen apart from occasionally in spring when they display above our woods and forests. So it's great to have a book that digs deep into the details of its life, written by an author with far more persistence and dedication that I could ever muster. Like many modern nature books it is written in the 'present historic' - giving a vivid sense of the quest to encounter the goshawk. Some people find this hard going, but I believe it does, in the right hands, bring an immediacy to the writing - and if it's good enough for Hilary Mantel... Conor Jameson combines a fine writing style with a depth of knowledge and sense of place - I look forward to his next book!
