From fall to spring J A Baker set out to track the daily comings and goings of a pair of peregrine falcons across the flat fen lands of eastern England He followed the birds obsessively observing them in the air and on the ground in pursuit of their prey making a kill eating and at rest activities he describes with an extraordinary fusion of precision and poetry And as he continued his mysterious private quest his sense of human self slowly dissolved to be replaced with the alien and implacable consciousness of a hawk It is this extraordinary metamorphosis magical and terrifying that these beautifully written pages record
