ARCHWAY BRIDGE TAWNY OWL HOOTING AGAIN!
A bit late in noting this, but on Thursday 11 August the tawny owl was hooting extensively from the Archway Cuttings North East (the sloping woodland just to the north of the Archway Bridge), at around 10.30 at night. So good to hear him! I am hoping that he has established himself there.
Another good nature note: two thrushes in and out of the trees to the north of the games pitches in Elthorne Park, N19, spotted today. Islington Council’s Greenspace department is managing Elthorne Park with wildlife in mind. They also have a wildflower meadow which has an abundance of teasels and wild carrot, popular with insects.
