About this book

Peregrine expert Dick Treleaven shares his knowledge of the birds accrued over 47 years of study. The text covers behaviour, habits and habitats, and hunting techniques and includes an account of the re-establishment of the peregrine on many parts of the north Cornish coast and in inland quarries. The illustrations and his observations capture the birds' unique attributes - their incredible vision and perception, and their sheer speed and agility.
From the foreword: `If you cannot experience the joy of a day on the cliffs with Dick Treleaven, this splendid book is the next best thing...' Brian Jackman.
