We’re lucky to have lots of wildlife on the allotments and we love hearing from our tenants when they spot something exciting. If you’re a tenant or visitor at St Anns Allotments and you ever get a chance to take a photo, feel free to send it to us or share on our Facebook page.

We had a visit from The RSPB on Tuesday 19th March to do a survey of the allotments. The results are as follows:

    Best sighting I have seen was a woodcock. Only seen it once near Ecoworks.
    Buzzard: We have had a buzzard at or near the allotments since late October 2012, Have not seen much of it in the last month but, last week it was flying over the Fresh plots. Sighting are at tree level and often seen near/in Ecoworks plots.
    Also at night tawny owl can be heard and sometimes seen.

        This afternoon – Sunday 31st March at about 15:08 I saw a heron flying out of plot C111.
        I have seen them fly over, but C111 has a sizeable well stocked pond!
