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.

  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!
