Kingfishers are regularly seen along the Regent’s Canal and other waterways in the borough in winter, but always leave before the breeding season starts. This is probably due to a lack of suitable soft, vertical banks in which they can dig their nest burrows. Providing suitable nesting sites for Kingfishers is an objective in the Tower Hamlets Local Biodiversity Action Plan.
The Friends were asked by Tower Hamlets Council to build a new kingfisher bank. You can read more about it and see pictures of the completed bank, by clicking HERE.
