Goshawk Summer – An evening with James Aldred

Blackfriars Priory, Gloucester, GL1 2HN – Wed 11th Jan 2023.

Come along to this historic venue and hear the Emmy Award-winning documentary wildlife cameraman and filmmaker talk about his work and his new book, which won the 2022 Wainwright Prize for Nature Writing. James has filmed around the world and has collaborated with Sir David Attenborough on numerous projects. He is also the author of ‘The Man Who Climbs Trees’.

James says ‘I wrote this book whilst filming wildlife in the New Forest during the spring and summer of 2020, a time when the world was filled with uncertainty and things were growing darker by the day.

On my own in the woods, I was given permission to keep filming a family of wild Goshawks. The story revolves around the day-to-day drama of life in an apex predator’s nest, but at its heart GOSHAWK SUMMER is my attempt to acknowledge and honour the critical role that Nature plays in our lives – a role that we take for granted at our peril.’
