Book Description Unwin Hyman. London. 1989 1st edition. 4to. Pp232. Colour & b/w plates by Donald Watson. Very good in dust-wrapper. "This is a story of hawks; of the fascination they have exerted upon a man for most of his lifetime and of his adventures while guarding their eyries through twelve memorable years. Dick Orton takes the reader to the lonely cliff-tops of the Exmoor coast, to the bleak valleys of central Wales, to the great hills of the English Lake District and to remote glens in the Scottish Highlands. His story brings the reader within binocular-range of the peregrine, goshawk, merlin, red kite, osprey and the eight other species of hawk which the dedicated bird-watcher may encounter in Britian today." This book "is based on bird-watching diaries kept from 1946 and on field notes of considerable detail since 1968.". Bookseller Inventory # 8482
