    I live by Downham Fields since last August. I love nature and study birds and butterflies as a hobby already for more than 20 years. I have been recording and taking pictures of all wildlife species since I moved. Notice one of the biggest colonies of ring-necked parakeets with more than 1,000 sleeping there over night. Also at the Downham Fields theres a fragile colony of butterfly Common Blue (Polyommatus icarus) with around 20 specimens counted last month of September. Around this colony was a rundap herbicide still half full droped by the grass. Dangerous not only for the butterflies but for kids and dogs that could touch it by accident. I of course took it carefully to the bin together with couple plastic bootles and cans that people just leave on the grass. Every week I cross this fields and take more bootles and cans. Maybe it needs more bins around the park or pay someone to go around once a week at least to catch this rubbish. I hope I can help in any issue related to wildlife in this or any other park. Regards.
