Site visit with Southwark Council

On Friday 17th July we met with Southwark Council’s Ecology Officer Jon Best to discuss the management of One Tree Hill. There were a wealth of butterflies, bees and dragonflies active on the day so it was the perfect time to visit.

The management plan for One Tree Hill needs updating to ensure that the aims are achievable and that the habitats can be properly managed for the benefit of wildlife. Bramble is an important resource for invertebrates and for blackberries but it is expanding into some of areas of grassland where it needs to be kept back. We also discussed the possibility of a pond to support dragonflies and amphibians.
