Susy Hogarth has today seen and photographed what has been identified by Dr Iain Boulton of Lambeth Parks as a Little Owl. Its commonly seen during the day. Its fairly common throughout Europe excepct Scotland and Ireland.
However its habitat is open farmland and stoney wastleland.
The creation of the heathland in the park plus the rat population by the ponds have probably drawn it as they lkike small rodents .It nests in holes in trees, in rocks and buildings.

Now called Railton Passage on OS maps.

WE have pavements where no-one claimed to do it and others where both claimes to do it. We have on Norwood Road an Issue where Southwark collect trades watse but will noit remove the trade waste that is outside the bins regarding it as flytipping to be collected by Lambeth.
The main pathway from Herne Hill Gate to Brockwell Hall is being relaid and widened slightly to allow for 10 ton vehicles.
