Greater London

Birding London

The area of Greater London is covered by the London Natural History Society who publish the London Bird Report. The report being based on a 20-mile radius form St Pauls cathedral has covered the same area since its first publication. It therefore extends into parts of Berks/Bucks, Essex, Herts, Kent and Surrey. The report covers an area of Surrey, that was previously in Middlesex that is not covered by the Surrey Bird Report (which is based on the old vice County of Surrey). The report also covers other small areas that are omitted from other reports due to county boundary changes, but also overlaps with the bird reports covering these respective Counties.

Despite the area's urbanised state, a surprising tally of 370 species have been seen in London. Whilst undoubtedly central London is ornithological speaking rather poor, a surprising variety of birds can be seen in some of the parks and on the River Thames that runs east-west through the whole recording area. The Thames dominates the east, where it is tidal, flowing through the remnants of the Thames-side marshes in Essex and Kent, through Central London up to Ham Lock, where the tidal flow stops and the river becomes fresh water. The presence of the tidal Thames has brought many coastal birds into central London. An influx of Guillemots in 1986, were seen as far up as Brentford. The gales of October 1987 brought an influx of sea birds into all parts of the London area, with many Sabine's Gulls being seen, along with Leach's Petrels, Red-necked and Grey Phalaropes; and Pomarine and Great Skuas, along with other birds as a supporting cast. In 1994 a Fulmar was even seen flying under Tower Bridge.

The East, both north and south of the Thames is dominated by the remaining Thames-side marshes, which still attract, but in much reduced numbers raptors, owls and other coastal species. The northeast is dominated by the Lea Valley with its complex of gravel pits and reservoirs. North London has a lot of small but bird-rich suburban sites such as Woodberry Wetlands, Alexandra Park, Hampstead Heath and Brent Reservoir. The West, by the gravel pit complexes in the Colne Valley and the West London and Surrey reservoirs and adjacent gravel pits that extend from the M4, southwest towards Molesey. The south is primarily known for its large parks such as Richmond Park and Wimbledon Common as well as Beddington Farmlands, which has very restricted access although there are plans to convert it to a Country Park. Also south London is home to the London Wetland Centre in Barnes which is now the best place in London to see Bittern in winter.

Changes have occurred, as they have elsewhere throughout the UK. Wryneck and Red-backed Shrikes have long since disappeared as London breeding birds, and more recently so have Tree Pipit, Common Redstart and Wood Warbler. But, on the other hand Little Ringed Plover, Collared Dove and Black Redstart all colonised in the Twentieth Century. Raptors such as Red Kite, Common Buzzard, Peregrine and even Marsh Harrier all breed in the area and are continuing to increase. Avocets have even managed to breed a few times and may yet colonise London. Some of the declines are due to habitat loss through expanding urbanisation; others are in line with those experienced in other parts of the UK.

So despite its apparent lack of appeal, London has a wealth of birds to offer, whether it is for the casual birdwatcher, or to those who hunt rarities.

The sites below are within the Greater London area and carry brief accounts of what might be seen at each location. These sites are those that on a regular basis turn up the more interesting birds, as per the London Bird Report - for further details and more sites see the London Bird Club wiki.

This grassy public space sits astride a sandy ridge, one of the highest points in London, running from Hampstead to Highgate, which rests on a band of London Clay. The heath is rambling and hilly, embracing ponds, recent and ancient woodlands, a lido, playgrounds, and a training track, and it adjoins the former stately home of Kenwood House and its estate. The south-east part of the heath is Parliament Hill, from which the view over London is protected by law.

It lies in the London Borough of Haringey, but is owned and managed by the City of London Corporation.

HNCF Bentley Old Vicarage Nature Reserve

Information

Satellite View

Bentley Old Vicarage Nature Reserve is a small woodland reserve in Harrow, in the north west suburbs of London.

The vicarage fell out of use in 1924 and was finally demolished in 1955. A few of the trees you see now are relicts of the vicarage garden while most have grown up since that time. In 1987 a group of volunteers took over the site and were soon sponsored by the Herts. and Middx. Wildlife Trust. It us now managed by Harrow Nature Conservation Forum.

As the park overlooks the River Thames many bird species associated with the river can be seen, especially in winter. Grey Herons feed along the shore at low tide and large numbers of Teal and Shelduck join the ubiquitous Mallards at both low and high tide. Cormorants common throughout London can be seen drying themselves at low tide or feeding in the river when the tide is up. Sparrowhawks, Kestrels and occasionally Peregrines can be seen flying over the park. There are several wading birds, which are uncommon on the river such as Redshank, Ringed Plover and Oystercatcher…

East London Birders Forum

Facebook Page

Welcome to the website of the ELBF. Mike Dent got the group going in August 1997 as a forum for local birders to network more easily and to accumulate data on the local avifauna and most importantly to promote the importance of local patch birding. It has evolved somewhat over the last ten years with the creation of our website and our continued involvement in local events and surveys. We have become the information hub for this area but rely on your records and photos to keep things fresh and up to date.

Regent’s Park, situated just north of some of London’s busiest shopping streets, is to a lot of people the best of the Royal Parks in Central London. It offers a variety of habitats from formal gardens to lakes, scrub, woodland and rough grassland with wildflower beds. Ornithologists (birders) since the 1800’s who have included the likes of W H Hudson and Ian Wallace have watched birds in the park. I have worked in the park since 1977 as assistant bird keeper, before becoming what is now termed Wildlife Officer. The park checklist now stands at over 200 species of birds, of which 45 species breed annually within the parks boundaries. This site I hope will show you where to look and what you could be lucky enough to find here.

They weren't hardcore enough for us. They wouldn't kip in a car each night for three months (actually, only one of us did that) They couldn't do overnight drives to Scotland for White-tailed Plovers. They wouldn't twitch The Gower AND Anglesey in the same day (who in their right mind would?) We bloody well could though!!!

I was born in Redruth Cornwall and whilst I now live in Enfield I still regard Cornwall as home. I spend a great deal of time in Cornwall usually at weekends and stay at the family home in Marazion. I have always been interested in wildlife and photography and in 2009 started to combine both interests. Most of the photos shown on this site will be taken in Cornwall but from time to time there may be images from parts of England. The images featured will mainly be birds but at times other wildlife images may be displayed…
