About this book

Soaring majestically on its broad, raised wings, the Common Buzzard is a familiar sight for many people in Eurasia. Recently, this highly adaptable raptor has demonstrated an uncommon ability to reach high densities in western Europe, returning to old haunts to impress, inspire and connect people with nature. This new Poyser monograph brings together a wealth of research on the species' origins, feeding and breeding behaviour, along with information on movement and survival from the authors' own studies. It concludes by examining the conservation conundrums that such a successful predator raises in the modern world.

Biography

Awed and inspired by wildlife, and especially raptors, both authors read Zoology at Oxford University before going on to track and carry out research on a variety of animals. Sean Walls has spent 30 years advising people on the best animal-tracking equipment and currently directs the Avian department for Lotek. Robert Kenward spent 40 years conducting fieldwork and writing books to inform and help ecologists, including A Manual for Wildlife Tagging and The Goshawk, with interludes for wider technology transfer. He now chairs groups for the IUCN and still enjoys work with raptors and engendering stakeholder-conservation networks for global and local cooperation.
