The Natural Heritage of Scotland Series
- Scottish Natural Heritage, British Ornithologists Union, Joint Nature Conservation Committee
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
Birds of prey are among the most fascinating and exciting of animals to observe and study. As predators they are at the heart of some of the most contentious conservation issues of the day. The book reflects this interest, and presents substantial new data drawn from amateur as well as professional studies.
Although this book focuses on birds of prey in Britain, it includes work undertaken in Spain, France and Iceland. Taken as a whole, this is a remarkable collection of papers which will excite bird watchers, researchers, land managers, decision-makers and the general public. There are colour illustrations and an index.
"The Editors have done an excellent job throughout, not least because they provide a useful prologue for each theme.."
