Event Description

Start the day with a song in your step

Saturday 19th May, 6am - 8am

Set your alarm clocks for an early start on the morning of the 19th May. We meet at 6.00 on the old Crouch End Hill Station platform for a walk in the direction of Finsbury Park. Hopefully the weather will be reasonable, as the anticipated chorale will be improved by clear skies overhead. Like us, our feathered friends prefer staying in bed on wet mornings! So what are we guaranteed to hear even in the rain? - Blackbird, Songthrush, Wren and Robin. If we don't get those four, our guide, former Islington Wildlife Conservation Officer Richard Meyers, says he'll eat his binoculars. Wood pigeon, Blackcap, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Chaffinch, Greater Spotted Woodpecker (drumming) are all just short of guaranteed! Whatever we hear it's always a wonderful experience and worth making the effort to get up and out. Hope to see lots of you on the day.

Access to Crouch Hill Station is via steps by the side of The Crescent Cafe at the top of Crouch End Hill before it becomes Hornsey Rise.
