The book on how to identify Western Palaearctic raptors in flight, some 60+ taxa, is now being printed and is available for pre-order on the internet, at NHBS (www.nhbs.com) and Amazon (www.amazon.co.uk). It should be out on the market by Feb 25th, 2016, but note, that Amazon in the US won't deliver until Apr 2016. With the raptors of the WP now dealt with, at least for the time being, it is time to pick up another dear project, which has been hibernating for some years now, the id. of the raptors of Africa. I'm really excited about this new field, as I feel this group is still rather poorly covered in current literature including all of the widely used field guides. This is one of the 100 or so species of African raptors, an adult Grasshopper Buzzard from The Gambia, Dec 2013.
