Recording the bird life of London and its surrounding rural fringe, this important book traces changes in the capital’s breeding birds in the last 30 years of the 20th century, a period of major environmental change in both town and countryside. It compares maps of breeding distribution in 1988-94 with earlier surveys and documents both the success of species such as the Great Crested Grebe, Magpie and Sparrowhawk in colonising new areas and the decline of once-familiar species such as the Barn Owl and Yellowhammer in the London Area. Line drawings illustrate most species. Foreword by R.S.R. Fitter, historical perspective by E.M.Nicholson.
