The Value of RedFrog Gardens to Wildlife
Gardens in RedFrog constitute a Local Ecological Network on account of their importance to wildlife, including birds and bats, which forage and commute throughout the area.
This has been recognised in the Local Plan due to the submission of wildlife sightings to Greenspace Information for Greater London (GiGL), which collates wildlife records for Greater London.

We should like to build on these data: in particular, we are keen to monitor the response of species to climate change and to learn about the impact on wildlife at local level. Residents are encouraged to submit wildlife sightings, as often as possible. You do not need to have a garden to submit sightings.
Please submit new sightings:
Observations can be quickly and easily submitted via the GiGL survey here:

These maps have been derived from records submitted via the RedFrog / GiGL Wildlife Survey and other inputs.
