About this book

The hen harrier is one of the iconic species of the world of birds and its history is a mix of controversy, persecution and recent patchy recovery. This book, a dedicated study of the bird in Northern Ireland for over two decades, provides a detailed account of the life, habits and prospects for the bird.

The author presents much new information about the harrier in its continuing struggle to re-establish its hold despite high levels of persecution from man or predation by other species. Having spent thousands of hours over many years studying these birds, he was rewarded by the discovery that this ground-nesting species was nesting in tall conifers in the forests of County Antrim - the only country throughout their vast European range where this occurs annually.
