Raptor: James Macdonald Lockhart
4th November - Friday
5pm, Friday 4 November
A journey in pursuit of the fifteen birds of prey species that nest and breed in the British Isles: from wind-scoured Orkney and the Outer Hebrides, to Dorset and Devon. Raptor is a poetic, insightful and sensitive history of shifting landscapes and habitats, and man’s often turbulent interactions with the natural world.
James Macdonald Lockhart’s notional ‘guide’ is the Isle of Harris-born early ornithologist, author and inspiration William MacGillivray. The event will be chaired by naturalist, writer and illustrator John Love.
