David Attenborough reads from J.A. Baker's British nature writing classic which was published over fifty years ago to critical acclaim. Written in the form of a diary, it covers seven months from autumn to spring and charts Baker's observations of this extraordinary predator. This episode introduces us to the diaries and gives us insights into Baker's obsession with the peregrine's hunting life in and around the Essex countryside, a county where Baker lived all his life.
