Welcome to our Scotswood Wildlife page. Below you can see photos of some of the wildlife that has been seen in the garden with a bit of information about each.
At the end of April, as part of Blossom Day, we asked visitors to photograph species and upload them to the iNaturalist app as part of the City Nature Challenge, an international competition to see which city could record the most wildlife over a four day period. We were amazed to see 165 observations uploaded to iNaturalist, with 82 species identified.

iNaturalist is a great app for recording wildlife but also for sharing information with others and for getting help in identifying unknown species. It’s also useful for finding out what is in your local area. You can also tweet or email sighting to us at Scotswood Garden and we will upload them to iNaturalist for you.
