Of all the birds of the British Isles, the raptor reigns supreme, sparking the imagination like no other. James Macdonald Lockhart’s book Raptor: A Journey Through Birds is a magnificent hymn to these beautiful animals which explores all fifteen breeding birds of prey on these shores – from the hen harrier swimming over the land in the dregs of a May gale on Orkney, to the ghostly sparrowhawk displaying in the fields around his home in Warwickshire. Come and hear James talk about this magnificent book that will change how we think of our own skies. A stunning debut in the tradition of Robert Macfarlane and Helen Macdonald.
Hear James talk about his incredible new book, and enjoy lunch with a glass of wine at the Pitlochry Festival Theatre.
