A penetrating andenchanting story that most likely will become a classic ... Armitage succeedsin highlighting today's strong commitment [to the osprey] among everyday peopleas well as in describing the sometimes dramatic background of the ospreypopulation's decrease and increase. Her story thus also becomes an interestingcontribution to the history of man's relationship with nature. In addition,which should not be underestimated, her account of the late summer of 2010 is areal nail-biter.
Armitage's delightful little book details [the ospreys'] conservation success story and pays loving tribute to the pioneering female osprey, Lady, who has certainly done her bit to swell the UK osprey population. ... As Armitage's affectionate book makes clear, Lady is one tough, magical, absolutely marvellous old bird.
The autobiography of a Scottish osprey is set to be a best seller.
An excellent read ... Covers a lot of stuff about the history of the osprey in Britain, and it [is] very well done.
I loved [this] book. It is an incredible story and written most beautifully. I learnt so much from reading it.
A wonderful book ... an inspiring account.
