Wildlife Gardening

Our first event of 2015 held in the wetlands centre, looked at garden wildlife

Native plants & Beneficial insects - Ger Scollard

Garden Birds - Richard Bono

Practical tips on pond construction and maintenance - Pat McElligott

Ger gave us an introduction to "wild' plants within our own gardens as the close relationship that they have with a wide variety of insects as well as some practical advice on how to start a wildflower garden.

Richard gave an insight into the habits of some of the feathered garden visitors and well as some rarer ones along with practical tips on bird feeders and their maintenance.

Pat shared his experience and knowledge gained while establishing a pond within a garden setting and showing the abundance of wildlife associated with it.

The slides from the talk can be viewed or downloaded here.
