Who said that London is a sterile urban wilderness? Just round the corner from where you and I live is a neglected allotment, some common land, a wood, a pond, a roadside verge a river bank. All of these are home to a hidden world of wildlife – hidden because we do not have the eyes to see nor the patience to wait.

Our aim is to bring together those who have sensed the possibilities of this world and want to know it better. We want to share our discoveries and enthusiasms and spread the news that nature is alive and well and living in East London! We do this practically by regular outings, by helping local schools explore their own environment, and by keeping photographic records of what we discover.

We would like you to join us. Apart from an interest in nature and photography, you need no special knowledge or skills

    Hi,
    some time ago I was asking you for permission to use one of the wonderful photgraphs within East London Nature. This applies on a photo of Physcia adscendens.

    Three errors on the page :

    http://www.eastlondonnature.co.uk/2010/10/ground-beetle-larva-and-pupa/

    (i) Pterostichus is spelt incorrectly ( there’s no “y” in it, it’s spelt with an ‘i’ ).

    (ii) The beetle isn’t any Pterostichus sp.. It’s a different Carabidae ( Ground beetles ) called Abax and it’s an Abax parallelepipedus.

    (iii) The larva attributed as being a Carabidae larva is in fact an Elateridae ( Click beetles ) larva and it looks to be one of the Denticollis sp. of click beetle.

    Keen to connect with others wanting to also connect with the nature around them in East London. Based in Hackney Wick, it would be wonderful to have outings with others to explore more!
