Season's Greetings from everyone at London Wildlife Trust

Posted: Friday 21st December 2018 by

Wishing you Season’s Greetings and the very best for the new year. If you have time, take the opportunity explore wildlife in London over the festive period.

Whether it’s flocks of finches looking for food in hedgerows and tree tops, ducks and geese roosting on open water, or the grandeur and beauty of trees stripped to their bark...

Hazel catkins are now emerging as are some wintertime flowers such as green (stinking) helleborine, lesser celandine, and gorse (which smells of coconut).

Whether it’s flocks of finches looking for food in hedgerows and tree tops, ducks and geese roosting on open water, or the grandeur and beauty of trees stripped to their bark, these can be witnessed on many of our reserves and other natural spaces across the capital.

If you like plants, then why not participate in the New Year Plant Hunt, co-ordinated by the Botanical Society of Britain & Ireland, the Hunt aims to capture the number of wild plants in flower over the new year period. Over 470 species were recorded in 2017-18. Pick a day between between Saturday 29th December 2018 and Tuesday 1st January.

Visit our reserves and discover London's wild side.
