Describes the life history and ecology of Buzzards, focusing on the British uplands. For the first time, population activities are followed through successive seasonal stages of their life cycle.
These include the vital and inter-related aspects of Buzzard territories and social behaviour, diets and hunting methods, food requirements, prey abundance and breeding success, survival and life spans and how Buzzard numbers and distribution have changed, particularly in relation to the influence of man. This title also demonstrates how well Buzzards have adapted to living in our modern and rapidly changing landscapes, constantly adapting their habits in response to prey resources and environmental conditions.
