Goshawk Summer : A New Forest Season Unlike Any Other, Hardback Book

Goshawk Summer : A New Forest Season Unlike Any Other Hardback



SHORTLISTED FOR THE JAMES CROPPER WAINWRIGHT PRIZE FOR NATURE WRITING 2022 What happens to nature when we are no longer there?

In early 2020, wildlife cameraman James Aldred was commissioned to film the lives of a family of goshawks in the New Forest.

Then lockdown. No more cars, no more aeroplanes, no one in the woods - except James - in a place empty of people but filled with birdsong and new life. In these silver nights and golden days, there were tumbling fox cubs, calling curlew and, of course, the soaring goshawks - shining like fire through one of our darkest times.

A goshawk summer unlike any other; an extraordinary season in the forest. 'Magical and transporting... a beautiful and deeply evocative hymn to love, hope and connection.' HELEN MACDONALD, author of H is for Hawk '[An] entrancing, acutely observed, beautifully paced diary of the secretive raptor's breeding season...

Fascinating.' BBC Wildlife
