    1. Is it a bird?The goshawk was the first raptor to become extinct in the British Isles but in the last few decades it has reappeared in very limited numbers. This book is Jameson’s tale of how he set out to discover if it had returned to his own area, somewhere around Bedfordshire, I think. I say 'I think' because Jameson has a very annoying habit of not revealing locations – he hints that this is to stop people being able to track and kill the goshawk, which would be both understandable and a [...]


    2. I was drawn to this book in an unusual way. I received an email message from an English, naturalist writer friend, Neil Ansell (Deer Island), who told me I had been quoted in the new book about the Goshawk. Now, while I am a bit of a Nature Crazy myself, I can't really be considered a "Birder". I have also never been to the UK, but the cover image was so inviting, that I dived in.Looking for the Goshawk is certainly an academic work. The author follows the careful need for corroborative evidence [...]


    3. I liked Conor’s previous book, but I like this one even more. Whereas in Silent Spring Revisited Conor lived through the events described but seemed, to me, to be a little detached from them, this is a book where he describes what he did, and where he went, to get to grips better with a magnificent but elusive bird.He takes us to Berlin, Cornell, Bedfordshire, the Peak District and many other places on the trail of goshawks and those who admire, watch and protect this bird. We are accompanied, [...]


    4. This is a superb read - I was 'hooked' from start to finish. If you care about wildlife, and why it matters to us, and what's really going on in the countryside, you should read this book. It's written in a fresh style, and he keeps it real all the way. I think this may just come to be regarded as a classic. Richard Darlington


    5. I enjoyed it to start with but it became tedious. Just find the Goshawk and tell us about it! A bit more factual detail and less mystique would be welcome.
