Discover London's urban wildlife during a walk at two very special and lesser-known green spaces

Join us for a guided walk of this these fantastic urban wild places in conjunction with the Friends of Dog Kennel Hill Wood and Friends of Green Dale.

These much-loved urban green spaces support a wide variety of wildlife: house sparrow, green and great spotted woodpeckers, wren, robin, song thrush, blackcap and chiffchaff amongst others, as well as an array of butterflies, bumblebees and wildflowers.

The Green Dale is home to some of the local area's best colonies of yellow meadow ants, seen in large humps in the grasslands. Whilst Dog Kennel Hill Wood's mature trees are the perfect habitat for nesting great spotted woodpeckers and a perch for hunting sparrowhawks.
