Wildlife in the park

There is a whole host of wildlife in Potters Fields Park thanks to the naturalistic garden design with herbaceous perennial beds. We also try to encourage wildlife with bee hives, bird & bat boxes, bluebell meadows and insect hotels.

Have you spotted any wildlife in the park? If so please do let us know.
