Kingston Green Radio 87.9 FM

Kingston Green Radio
Yesterday there was an opportunity to broadcast local biodiversity issues on Kingston Green Radio, on air until the end of May. We chatted about the Kingston Handbook No. 18, published by the  London Ecology Unit, now unfortunately out of print. You can still refer to this book in the reference library, or the London Natural History Society Library ( based at the Natural History Museum).  It has a wealth of information about the wildlife sites in the borough. We looked at the entry for Seething Wells, which includes several paragraphs about the chalk grassland plants discussing the 'mauve drifts of small scabious, alive with bees and butterflies'. The latter is a plant rarely found in London.
