About this book

Owls command attention; the quintessential emblem of darkness, they evoke strong cultural responses, making their mysterious lives fascinating to us. Northern Europe's 12 species range from the huge great grey, with a round head as big as a small child's to the tiny pygmy owl that possesses a strength and ferocity out of all proportion to its size. For two of the world's finest bird photographers, Jari Peltomäki and David Tipling, photographing and learning about owl behaviour has become a passion.

Owls explores the fascinating lives of our owls, accompanied by riveting diary accounts from the authors' adventures photographing in Europe's wildest places. Encounters with owls are often fleeting, the hoot of a tawny owl emanating from a churchyard or the white ghost-like flash of a barn owl momentarily caught in the headlights. Owls reveals these secret lives in spectacular pictures, many published here for the first time.

Wildlife Monographs is a series of fabulous, full-colour books led by stunning photographic images with fresh, informative and vivid new text charting our favourite wild animals on their home terrain. The spellbinding, intimate images captured by some of the world's premier wildlife photographers breathe with vivid insight and a sense of being closer than most of us can ever hope to be to their subjects. With bright, compelling text that successfully combines fascinating information with accessibility, these are books to give as gifts, to treasure and to share across every age from eight to eighty. Here's a glimpse of some of the world's increasingly rare and endangered species, captured on camera.

Media reviews

"This stunning photography book showcases northern Europe’s 12 species of owl through the lenses of two of the world’s finest wildlife photographers. [...] Both authors give a passionate account of their work, providing inspirational reading for any budding wildlife photographer or nature enthusiast."
- David Still, BTO book reviews

"This book showcases a stunning selection of the authors’ photographs, depicting all but one of Europe’s regularly occurring owls. [...] The accompanying text is secondary to the photographs but is lively and engaging. It complements the photographs well, especially when the authors are describing how some of the more challenging pictures were obtained. The book finishes with a ‘fact file’ section with 1–2 pages for each species. This is useful, though it mostly includes information that is readily available in good field guides."
