Conor Jameson - Looking For The Goshawk 

 

Looking for The Goshwak -Conor discusses the sequence of events that led to him writing his acclaimed book Looking for the Goshawk, some of the people he met and the places he visited as he seeks to understand 'the phantom of the forest'. He describes how the lost raptor went missing from our landscape, and our imaginations, and the work that's being done to help it come back. He describes what the apparent and actual absence of goshawks may reveal about us, and the exciting challenges of rewilding.
