wooded slopes, and the small new grove of trees on the south east side of the garden. In his report, he prioritized the providing of natural food for birds in the form of berries etc and the creation of a a ten-year biodiversity plan. He also added some serious thought needs to be applied to the subject of the Fann Street hedge and to adding suitable ground cover in parts of the garden to encourage birds to nest.


Barbican Birds Start to Twitter One aspect of bird focussed activity we have neglected until now is monitoring exactly which species come to our gardens and when. Our bird feeding


team have set up a Twitter account, @BarbicanBirds, to give residents and


visitors a single place to record their bird sightings around the Estate. Anyone with a Twitter account can follow us to find out what we’re seeing in our gardens and on our balconies. At the end of each season we will summarize the findings. If you have any sightings to report,


please tell us what you’ve seen and where. Remember to include @BarbicanBirds within your tweet; if you put it at the beginning of the text your tweet will only be seen by people who’ve chosen to follow our account, and if you put it later


in the


text it will reach a wider


audience.


Either way is fine. If you’re unfamiliar with


Twitter and don’t know how to tweet or to follow, I’m happy to send you some information that will help you get


started - just contact me at paula@johnandpaula.com


Please join us I know many of you have extensive knowledge of birds, bees, trees, shrubs etc., and we would love you to join us in creating long-term plans for the Garden and the rest of our Estate. Please contact me paula@johnandpaula.com.
