World of Birds


  • Swans in focus - Seen well, wintering Whooper an Bewick's Swans can be readily seperated from each other and from resident Mute Swans. But distant, out-of-place or fly-over birds are a frequent source of confusion. Don't miss Andy Stoddart's essential ID guide
  • The winter challenge! - Get the New Year off to a great start with 10 birding targets for January in our latest challenge. From photographing Waxwings to monitoring Bewick's Swans, and doing a New Year 'big day' to finding an overwintering 'Sibe', make a resolution and see how many you can achieve
  • Shapes of things to come - The RSPB has a vision to take us to 2030. It is aiming to ensure that at least 20 per cent of British land is managed for our wildlife and stepping up to its campaigns to save the likes of the European Turtle Dove, Wood Warbler and the world's albatrosses. The planet's biggest wildlife charity takes us through its ambitious plans for the future.
  • FREE World of Birds supplement - Where do the best birders go birding. Take a holiday tip from our star-studded line-up and find out where Bill Oddie, Noah Stryker, Killian Mullarney, Bruce Pearson, Dominic Cousens and more go birding!
