London Bird Report 2015

Great Northern Diver at King George VI Reservoir. (Andrew Moon)The latest issue of the London Bird Report has just been published and contains a wealth of information for people who live or work in London, or bird-watch in London. This is one of the annual publications that members of the London Natural History Society (LNHS) receive as part of their membership. Find out how to join the LNHS. You can also buy back issues of the London Bird Report.




This issue of the London Bird Report includes papers about overwintering Chiffchaffs in the Colne Valley, the birds of Greenwich Park & Blackheath, the rise and fall of the Ruddy Duck, a breeding bird survey of East Sheen Common, a consideration of whether Common Terns and Black-headed Gulls can co-exist on breeding rafts, and where to find birds in the Regent’s Park. The report also gives a summary of the status of all the birds that were reported in London in 2015, as well as a brief account of the first British record of Slaty-backed Gull in 2011, which has now been added to the British list.



Extracts of some of these papers are given below; as well as the full contents list. (n.b. click on the page to download the full article about where to find birds in Regent's Park).
