Below are links to other groups and places in the London area, and to national organisations which support the conservation of birds and other wildlife.


Hampstead Heath managed by the City of london is one of London's most popular open spaces, situated just four miles (six kilometres) from Trafalgar Square.
Note especially the Wildlife page.

Heath Hands helps conserve 350 hectares of unique green spaces including Hampstead Heath, Highgate Wood, Keats House and the Kenwood Estate delivering a wide range of volunteering, community, education and outdoor nature related programmes.

The Heath and Hampstead Society works to preserve the wild and natural state of Hampstead Heath; to maintain the character and amenities of Hampstead; and to promote the study of local history, natural history and conservation.

There is also an independent community website covering Hampstead Heath.


Amid all the development around King's Cross, Camley Street Natural Park run by the London Wildlife Trust remains an oasis for wildlife and people.
Now with a Visitor Centre and cafe. Individuals and groups are welcome to visit the park and to take part in activities.

Regent's Park is popular amongst birdwatchers as one of the richest sites in London. The habitat includes wildflower grassland, secluded woodland, wetland and reedbeds.
With the retirement of Tony Duckett, former Conservation Officer, we have lost his blog and Twitter feed of bird sightings in Regents Park (Tony has kept his Regents Park Birds Twitter handle to Tweet about birds in Norfolk). The Friends of Regents Park and Primrose Hill are hoping to resume the guided bird walks Tony led for them but, in the meantime, they do have a Wildlife page on their website which suggests what birds to look out for.

There's a well-illustrated blog for birds of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.

The 42 hectare London Wetland Centre is one of the best urban sites in Europe to watch wildlife, an international award winning visitor attraction and a Site of Special Scientific Interest.


The London Birders have news of the latest sightings and details about local patches.

The London Natural History Society's members have two things in common – an interest in nature and a wish to learn more about the diverse wildlife of the London area. The varied programme of field trips includes bird trips in the London area and, since 2020, talks on Zoom.

The London Wildlife Trust manages over fifty London-wide reserves and campaigns to save important wildlife habitats, engaging London's diverse communities through access to its nature reserves, volunteering programmes and education work.

The RSPB Central London Local Group offers a programme of illustrated Zoom talks on a variety of topics, and birdwatching field trips to many coastal and countryside sites. There's a Members Group on Facebook and Members receive email updates. All their events need to be booked via Eventbrite.

The British Ornithologists' Club aims to advance education in the subject of ornithology for the benefit of the public by promoting scientific discussion between members and others interested in ornithology. Their meetings are mostly in Central London and are normally free and open to non-members.
