The catalogue of RSPB publications contains hundreds of books, reports and leaflets on a diverse range of subjects.

Here you’ll find everything from free information leaflets on feeding garden birds to definitive handbooks on habitat management. We hope the wealth of resources listed here will be of great value to a wide range of readers, from schools, to landowners, to conservation bodies. Although most of the documents are aimed at our professional audience.

Many of our titles are highlighted within the catalogue with photos of the covers and a brief description. 

This website also contains a document library, in which some of the free documents are available to download.
