The London Bird Atlas

The London Bird Atlas is an authoritative and detailed account of just under 200 of the regularly occurring birds of London. It provides the most up-to-date analyses of the changes to London’s birds based on a comprehensive survey run in conjunction with the British Trust for Ornithology’s National Bird Atlas project.

The London Natural History Society

The text has been written by Ian Woodward, professional ornithologist, and Richard Arnold, a professional ecologist, who are on the committee of the London Bird Club, a section of the London Natural History Society which dates back to 1858. The text is complemented by a series of detailed maps produced by Neil Smith, a professional ecological cartographer.
