Knighton Wild has a number of activities planned for the first half of 2018, starting with sessions to make and install habitats for insects in St Mary’s Churchyard on 17th March and 7th April. On 21st March, we will have a talk on bird identification, followed by a session on Saturday 24th in the morning at Knighton Park to put our new skills into practice. Sometime in April we plan a meeting to talk about the idea of improving the Kenwood Road green space for wildlife. (We are waiting to hear if we have got some funding to run and advertise the meeting to residents in the area.) May will be busy with a visit to Hicks Lodge on Sunday 13th, following Ben Devine’s talk on From Black to Green: Coalpits to Treetops about the National Forest, our AGM on Wednesday 16th with Sally Cunningham, author of ‘Ecological Gardening’ ,and a mini-bioblitz at Queen’s Road Allotments on 27th May. On 30th June, we have another identification session, this time on butterflies on a Saturday morning, followed by a walk to Knighton Park to see what we can find. On 7th July, we shall be running an Open Gardens event with South Knighton Community Events with the theme of Wildlife Gardening.
