St Julians Park

Bluebells in St Julian's Park

St Julian’s Park has mixed deciduous woodland and mown grassland with a number of springs with a rich bryophyte flora.

There is an abundance of fungi all over the woodland, such as Fly agaric, Bracket fungus and Jelly ear fungus.

A variety of birds includes the common Blackbird and the Green Woodpecker.

The wonderful array of butterflies includes the Peacock butterfly (Inachis io) and the Purple hairstreak (Neozephyrus quercus), which was recorded this year at the Bioblitz event.
