Wildife Report just in: Brian has just returned from his weekly survey of the Gardens.
Weather: Mild, still some insects around including tree bumble bee, common carder bee and dock bug
Some plants still in flower like the Deptford pink (this is scarce), hemp agrimony, borage, sedum and the brightly orange fox and cubs plant. In the pond, watermint is in flower.
Fungi – looking out, not yet
Birds: buzzard soaring overhead, heard bullfinch, nuthatch and longtail tits.
When you’re next at the Gardens, why not pick up a Nature Trail leaflet or pop into the bird hide to see our weekly record and you can always borrow binoculars from the office or browse our wildlife library in the Visitor Room.
