British Birds – Birding in depth since 1907!

Join a community of like-minded birders, amateur and professional ornithologists, writers and photographers when you read British Birds, the birdwatchers’ journal of record.

Each month, we publish a range of articles, each giving a detailed account of its subject, with page space allocated to allow for really in-depth coverage. Alongside information about birds recorded in the Western Palearctic or other species of significant interest, there’s news and comment from the UK and beyond, a summary of recent sightings and new book releases critically appraised.

British Birds also includes the annual reports

of the British Birds Rarities Committee and the UK

Rare Breeding Birds Panel.

All profits generated by the journal support conservation and research projects.

“British Birds is a journal for all occasions. It’s the key depository for our birding past; it keeps birders abreast of what’s happening right now; and it will surely help us all to chart the future of ornithology.”

Mark Cocker

“British Birds is among my all time favourite journals: I love its history, and I love its Notes section in particular which is a goldmine and a fabulous source of research ideas.”

Professor Tim Birkhead,

University of Sheffield
