This list of birds of Great Britain comprises all bird species that have been recorded in a wild state in Great Britain. In general the avifauna of Britain is similar to that of the rest of Europe, although with fewer breeding species. In addition, six more species are awaiting consideration by the British Ornithologists' Union Records Committee. The species order and scientific names used here follow those of the official British list, maintained by the British Ornithologists' Union BOU. These reports were formerly geographically based and included the whole of the British Isles, but records for the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland are now published by their own ornithological associations.

This is a list of national birds. Most species in the list are officially designated. Some species hold only an "unofficial" status. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For the documentary film, see National Bird film. Wikimedia list article.

The common chaffinch or simply the chaffinch Fringilla coelebs is a common and widespread small passerine bird in the finch family. The male is brightly coloured with a blue-grey cap and rust-red underparts. The female is much duller in colouring, but both sexes have two contrasting white wing bars and white sides to the tail. The male bird has a strong voice and sings from exposed perches to attract a mate. The chaffinch breeds in much of Europe, across the Palearctic to Siberia and in northwestern Africa. The female builds a nest with a deep cup in the fork of a tree.

The State of the UK's Birds 2020

Using standardised criteria, species with breeding, passage or wintering populations in the UK were assessed by experts from a range of bird NGOs and assigned to the Red, Amber or Green lists of conservation concern. The assessment is based on the most up-to-date evidence available and criteria include conservation status at global and European levels and, within the UK: historical decline, trends in population and range, rarity, localised distribution and international importance. This update shows that many bird species are increasingly at risk. Nineteen species were red-listed for the first time due to worsening population status, and one species Merlin was returned to the Red list.
