About the Book

Falcons have been a source of inspiration to writers, artists, historians and naturalists alike.

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. The book takes each of the four breeding species in turn (Kestrel, Merlin, Hobby and Peregrine Falcon), exploring its form, habitat, breeding biology and status, along with a chapter on the hunting techniques of each species.

Critical Praise

'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

Praise for the New Naturalist series:

‘Taken either individually or as a whole, they are one of the proudest achievements of modern publishing’ The Sunday Times

‘The series is an amazing achievement’ The Times Literary Supplement
