This book is based on many years of experience with eagles. It was written by bringing together Stuart's diary and field notes, along with his photographs, thus providing a complete description of eagles, their behaviour and ecology.
Stuart is a founder member of the North East Raptor Study Group-the first to be set up in the country. Stuart has worked with Jeff Watson and Keith Brockie, and more recently with Mike McGrady.
The "Action Researchers" guide to golden eagles
by Derek Spencer in the United Kingdom (04/06/2012)
This is a superbly accurate account of what it takes to be a serious golden eagle "action researcher" and fieldworker. This book has obviously been researched and written by a dedicated golden eagle fieldworker. The days on the hill are complemented by outstanding photographs of what can be seen if the long hard hours are put it. This book is ideal for someone with an interest in golden eagles right up to the serious raptor monitor. I would recommend this book to anyone with any interest in birds or the wild rugged Scottish landscape.
"[...] The book is superbly illustrated with the author’s own photographs, some of the eagles themselves, but many showing the wide range of other animals and plants that may be encountered when off the beaten track in the highlands of Scotland. Reading through the book was certainly a very pleasant way to while away a few hours indoors, whilst at the same time firing an enthusiasm to spend more time outside watching wildlife at first hand."
