The garden is a haven for 1000s of British plants and animals and demonstrates wildlife conservation in the inner city. Over 2,000 species have been identified in the Wildlife Garden since it opened in 1995.

Visitors to the wildlife garden recently have included mistle thrush, goldfinch and redwing. And our resident foxes are still about. Early signs of spring include flowering snowdrops. And there is plenty of fungi still present in the garden, plus the occasional sleepy toad.
