Looking for the Goshawk – The Lost Raptor
By: Conor Jameson

In this talk Conor describes the events that led to him researching and writing his 2013 book Looking for the Goshawk, and what else he discovered along the way, on the trail of the 'phantom of the forest'. The search takes him to some of our wildest places, but also to the heart of some of our most urban. This mysterious raptor may not be what you thought.
