Great British Bee Count 2017
We all know bees are in trouble with declining numbers. This year we took part in the Great British Bee Count.
At Pine Walk we have Bee Keepers, so Honey Bees were spotted along with varieties such as Banded White Bumblebee, and Early Bumblebee.

Recently we have been identifying butterflies on the allotment. So far we identified Peacock, Brimstone, Orange Tip, Small White & Speckled Wood. We shared our findings with the local primary school on Community Day.
Brimstone Butterfly. Also spotted in July 2017.

Sunflowers very popular with bees, birds and mice (they ate all my seeds)

Passion Flower - another favorite with bees.
This bee is carrying a glob of nectar on his legs - it is on its way back to the bee hive
Endangered animals in Bromley
Bromley Diversity have shared these posters with us to help identify endangered animals.
Toad spotted by tenant Feb 2018. Picture sent details to Bromley Biodiversity. (it looks like the one in the poster to me? Maybe a little less grumpy.)
