Bioblitz in the Drummond courtyard

Hands up who knew there was a courtyard behind the Drummond building. One person claimed to have worked at the Uni for 20 years and never knew it was there

Our first Uni bioblitz with staff from the Uni and from EricNorthEast (environmental records). So for Covid we kept it contained in the courtyard – turned out it was a great place – despite some dubious “wild flower” species
