Last month we combined the group's interest in local wildlife with one resident's unique knowledge on fabric printing to look at programming activities at No.15 in a slightly different way.
As part of our conversations about the future community space on Knight's Walk we have been combining our focus both on skill and interests that exist within the community of Knight's Walk and also looking outward to connect with experts and local organisations who might be interested in running activities in the space.
Knowing about the group's keen interest in local wildlife we invited Katy Thomas, a Senior Ecologist, to come and run a talk at No.15 about Kennington Wildlife with a particular focus on her passion - birds.
We gathered at No.15 for Katy's fascinating presentation where we found out lots of new and interesting facts about the birds, foxes, owls, bats and falcons that inhabit some London neighbourhoods. In particular we were surprised to find out that there are now more urban foxes in London than double decker buses, you can find seals in their colony at canary wharf and we also heard an incredible success story of a pair of peregrine falcons who nest in Battersea Power Station.
