Train Station Garden

On the 4th September I was shown a hidden gem that is the Perth station garden.

This garden is beautiful and full of life. What I got up to when I was there was exploring the garden for any type of insect that was living there. We searched high and low tallying off each bug we found in forty five minutes.

We split the garden into three sections, we had a section for things we found on plants, a section for things we found on man-made objects and a section for things we found on the ground and it was fifteen minutes per section.

We had a list of six special species of which we managed to find three! The ones we discovered were the two spotted lady bug, the leopard slug and the shield bug.
