A pamphlet in which a poem about the kestrel (Falco tinnunculus) hovers over a landscape composed of folk-names for the bird in English, Welsh, Irish and Gaelic.

Kestrel populations are in decline in the UK. The reasons are as yet unknown, but it is thought that habitat loss is a key factor. The 134 folk-names gathered here are something of a linguistic population count. By no means complete, the list represents a historical, rather than contemporary, survey - a form of salvage, a shoring up, an attempt to stem the tide.

A new edition of Domain is now available. All profits will be donated to the Hawk Conservancy Trust, who have a programme dedicated to kestrel population monitoring and conservation.
