Birds Britannia is a four-part BBC Four television series about the birds of the United Kingdom, first shown in 2010.[1] It was produced by Stephen Moss.

Each of the four, sixty-minute episodes concentrates on one kind of bird: garden birds, waterbirds, seabirds and birds of the countryside.[1]

The series has no presenter, and is narrated by the Scottish actor Bill Paterson,[1] with filmed interviews with a wide range of experts and bird enthusiasts, including David Attenborough, Mark Cocker, Jeremy Mynott, Tim Birkhead, Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall, Christopher Frayling, Kate Humble, Rob Lambert, Desmond Morris, David Lindo, Helen Macdonald, Andrew Motion, Tony Soper, and Bill Oddie.[1]

It has been announced that a book of the same title, by Stephen Moss, will be published by Collins in April 2011 (ISBN 978-0007413447).[2]
