About this book

Join Dick Forsman, widely acclaimed as the world expert on the birds of prey of the Western Palearctic and beyond, in his quest to find and photograph all the raptors of Europe during dozens of trips to all corners of the continent and beyond over a period of more than a decade.

The result is a remarkable book, which will be on the wish list of birders everywhere. It distils the very best of the thousands of images Dick has taken over the years, including some sets of images that make up their own small stories within each chapter. Species covered include everything from the diminutive Merlin to stealth-hunters such as Northern Goshawk and the mighty Lammergeier and White-tailed and Golden Eagles.

There are geographical chapters on Raptors of the far north, Raptors of the Mediterranean, Raptors in the Pyrenees and Raptors of the Middle East and behavioural chapters on Migration, Moult, Breeding and Hunting, as well as on the recent hot topic of Hybridisation. A useful technical details section at the back of Raptors in Focus will give added appeal for nature photographers.
