When Kate came to Saltholme
Hi everyone, At the end of January, Saltholme celebrated its second birthday . Well, that was just the first of many possible birthdays. Some of you might remember that we actually had two 'openings' - a quiet opening in January and an all-singing, all-dancing one in March. Two years ago...

Almost a riot in the wildlife garden
Hi everyone, There's more and more colour appearing in the wildlife garden. It's almost a riot. Here are some pictures from today... These aren't the Welsh daffodils that Peter was on about the other day , they're not quite in bloom yet. Next time you're at Saltholme...
