The birds special to this area.
See our Bird guide for other species.
More than seven million people live in Greater London and you can double that figure if you include commuters. But even this figure is far off the Capital’s wild population. From ants to yellowhammers, and zebras if you include zoo animals, London is buzzing with wildlife.
The Capital’s parks, waterways and gardens are a mosaic of different habitats. We’ve ancient woodlands, medieval marshes, industrial wastelands and gardens full of fruit, vegetables and exotics. It supports struggling cockney sparrows, speedy peregrine falcons and summer visiting swifts to name just three.
Our work here focuses on helping Londoners discover this natural heritage and to step-up efforts to support it. We’re also doing what we can to future proof our Capital against the impacts of climate change.
