Call of the Eagle
This is an account of one man's 30 year involvement with England's rarest bird, the Golden Eagle. The author discovered and recorded many previously unknown facts about Golden Eagles helping to plan and implement projects to help secure their foothold in England. His project is the most detailed and complete study of a pair of Golden Eagles with, at its heart, the life and times of an eagle he followed from its arrival in 1982 until its death 22 years later. A bird that would eventually show little fear of him and accept his presence rather than flee. The author recounts the hardships experienced by the eagle and his record of behaviour at the nest is unparalleled. Working with Golden Eagles is not without difficulties and the author's encounters with unsympathetic shepherds and poor decision making are also described, as are his dealings with egg collectors.
