    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.

    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.
