wildlife in the suburbsWildlife in the Suburbs is a general book about Perivale Wood and the surrounding area. It is somewhat out of date now,the third edition having been published in 1997. However, it still gives a good idea of what to look for in the Reserve, as well as a brief history of the Selborne Society and the Gilbert White connection.

It is available at a nominal cost from the hut in the Reserve on Open Day and at regular meetings.
