Darlands Lake this morning, looking stunning and no crowds #Millhill #Nw7 pic.twitter.com/LXLMZ6vUdD— Roger Tichborne/RogT #CTID 🏴☠️🇬🇧 (@Barneteye) April 29, 2020
There is a circuit of the nature reserve, which starts and ends in Burtonhole Lane. This is the first sight you'll see as you leave the hustle and bustle of the Ridgeway and reach the point where Burtonhole Lane splits.
This award winning photo was taken of the view that will greet you, so make sure you take a camera!
We are pleased to announce the winning entry for the 'I love Barnet' photographic competition. Taken by Mark from Burtonhole Lane NW7, overlooking Totteridge Valley.

Our friends at @Abettermillhill pictured a rather fine looking herd in this field recently along with some other fine sights

If you keep your eyes open you will see some very interesting sights, as Samuel Levy regularly notes

I was pleased to find this Large Red Damselfly today in the Totteridge Valley. Potentially a new species for the area likely due to how under watched it is. This was my first Damselfly of the year so it wont be long now before the others follow. pic.twitter.com/r3QXNKI3iY

Today I decided to go and check on the Lambs in the Totteridge Valley. They are now around two weeks old. Hopefully they will be something to brighten up this fine spring day. #spring #SolaceInNature #SaturdayMotivation pic.twitter.com/xw1h11Xik5

Today I decided to head out to the Totteridge Valley and have a look around. I was pleased to see that both the Little Owls were in their favoured tree this afternoon. A Singing Firecrest was a nice bonus, probably a migrant. #londonbirds pic.twitter.com/UNY2v9HN2w

The last 3 days have been full of raptor passage, however today it became to much to handle for the one of the local Buzzards. There were 7 birds circling Folly Farm in the Totteridge Valley before this fight broke out between 3 of them. #londonbirds #nature pic.twitter.com/fN7fs79UNi
Samuel isn't the only one who has seen some amazing wildlife on the Totteridge Valley
Fantastic day walking through Totteridge valley, thank you @FinchleyBirder for organising it. Kestrel, buzzard, mistle thrush and an Egyptian goose nesting in a tree , Garganey , over 50 species were recorded I believe #londonbirds pic.twitter.com/Sk0QsJ1l8Z— dilshan muthalib (@dilshan1979) April 22, 2018

Not bad for a London post code, is it?
