About this book

From the inside flap:

"Birds of Prey in the UK: On a Wing and a Prayer has been produced collaboratively by 26 organisations.

It highlights the value and importance of birds of prey in the UK and the conservation success story they represent. It seeks to separate fact from myth, based on evidence and not anecdote. We have published this because, as a group of organisations, we are concerned that a small number of people see birds of prey as a threat and portray their recovery as being ‘out of control’. Some people go further, breaking the law, with serious and sad consequences for birds of prey in some parts of the UK.

As champions of the natural environment, we can only be content when the populations and distributions of our birds of prey recover fully. For this to happen, full legal protection must be maintained and action taken to stop illegal killing.

We wish to see healthy populations of all wildlife and collectively are doing much to restore special habitats, secure more sustainable land management and introduce people to the spectacle of our native wildlife."
