A Jersey Tiger Moth at Railway Fields this summer

A Jersey Tiger Moth at Railway Fields last summer. Some moth!

We are a voluntary group dedicated to preserving and maintaining the beautiful Railway Fields local nature reserve in Harringay, Green Lanes. We hold monthly conservation and family wildlife arts sessions, plus special events to encourage people to visit and learn more about the wildlife in their midst. Our work supports the activities of The Conservation Volunteers (TCV), the organisation that manages the site.

Coming up soon:

Saturday 29 April, 10am-2pm – Conservation and family fun: Gates open 10am-2pm. Join us to help maintain the nature reserve’s wildlife habitats or take part in Weekend of Play activities for families. Find out more…

Sunday 7 May – Dawn Chorus Walk. Experience the magical sounds of the dawn chorus and learn to identify birds by their song. Find out more…

Sunday opening: thanks to our volunteer wardens, Railway Fields is openĀ on the second and last Sunday of every month (11am-2pm), weather and volunteer availability permitting.

Weekday opening hours: Railway Fields is open on Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm.

Join our mailing list to hear about future events and conservation sessions by emailing us at friendsofrailwayfields@gmail.com

  1. Really like your website and facebook group. Hoping we might get some advice re bird & bat houses, not sure if they would be suitable for Ducketts Common?

    • Hi, thank you! I can’t think of a reason why you couldn’t have bird/bat boxes – however, the Friends weren’t involved in positioning the boxes at Railway Fields, so I’m no expert. TCV may be able to advise, or there is some useful advice on the RSPB website about bird boxes, or try the National Nest Box Week website. I’m sure Lee Valley Bats could give you some advice about bat boxes. Good luck!
