Wildlife Watch

We have a number of wildlife specific areas on site and are also actively working to expand the wildlife corridors across the site as a part of the future development of the allotments. We would really appreciate updates throughout the year of anything you’ve seen that you think of interest or that is noteworthy. Either inform a committee member or tell us online here: Contact Form

Scarlet Tiger Moth
A Scarlet Tiger Moth – Found at Lansdowne Allotments in June 2021

See the Scarlet Tiger Moth. Sandy found it while weeding the Raspberries.  Isn’t it beautiful.  We must be doing something right on the allotments.  It loves nettles and comfrey which we have round and about.
