"It is over 20 years since Dominic Mitchell's book Where to Watch Birds in the London Area appeared, and much has changed since then. David Darrell-Lambert's new book, published in association with London Wildlife Trust, brings matters up to date, with the inclusion of sites such as Woodberry and Walthamstow Wetlands which have seen great changes in the intervening period.
