Christopher Miles "Chris" Perrins, LVO, FRS (born 11 May 1935)[1] is a British biologist. He is Leverhulme Emeritus Fellow at the Edward Grey Institute of Field Ornithology at Oxford University, and an Emeritus Fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford.

He was appointed the first Warden of the Swans in 1993. This is a new office in the Royal Household of the Sovereign of the United Kingdom, created in 1993 when the ancient post of Keeper of the Queen's Swans (which dated from the thirteenth century) was divided into two new posts. The second is the Marker of the Swans.

Perrins served as President of the British Ornithologists' Union from 2003 to 2007.
