"British Birds is a monthly journal that has become an
institution. It was founded in 1907 by the very
distinguished ornithologist H. F. Witherby whose family
owned a publishing house.

British Birds is now published by 'a non-profit-making
company for the benefit of ornithology'. Its records go back
to 1843 as it incorporates the old journal The Zoologist. It
includes papers, letters, notes, recent reports,
competitions, reviews etc. The magazine also hosts the
national Rarities Committed and has regular reports from
this, from the Rare Birds Breeding Panel and from its
extensive network of correspondents Europe-wide.

It often contains stunning photos and runs a competition
annually for them and also for black-and-white drawings. The
editor is Tim Sharrock and Erika Sharrock manages
subscriptions, back numbers and advertising. The address is
Fountains, Park Lane, Blunham, Bedford MK17 3NJ. The numbers
