Full Description

The London area has a fantastic range of bird species, from the rare Black Redstart to the humble Feral Pigeon and the exotic Ring-necked Parakeet. Published jointly with The London Natural History Society, this atlas contains records of 200 species that were observed in the region, covering an area within 20 miles (or approximately 32km) of St Paul's Cathedral. The atlas documents the breeding and wintering distribution of the birds in the area and identifies changes in distribution since the previous two breeding atlases of the London area, in 1968-72 and 1988-94. A full introduction describes the methodology and this is followed by illustrated species accounts, each with up to five maps covering breeding distribution; breeding abundance; breeding change; winter distribution and winter abundance.
