James, who spoke to the Echo last year about his new venture, will now see his book released on paperback having previously only sold it via online.

From June 2, Goshawk Summer will be available to buy for £9.99 in local book stores including Waterstones.

A review of the book by BBC Wildlife said: “Wildlife filmmakers are renowned for their patience and concentration – qualities evident in Aldred’s entrancing, acutely observed, beautifully paced diary of the secretive raptor’s breeding season. Fascinating.”
