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.

I have subscribed to BB in one format or the other since the late 50's when I obtained it through my newsagent and then direct and now in digital format, I think the digital format is the best, you can find things in it quite quickly and it doesnt take up any space! I have a house full of back copies because you cant afford to throw them away! Reviewed 03 April 2020
