As the nation celebrates National Insect Week, we thought we’d round up some of our favourite Mudchute insects. It’s hard to choose as there are so many incredible insects that make Mudchute their home.

It’s a fantastic excuse to get outside and explore our local wildlife, whether that be out watching butterflies and grasshoppers on the fields, spotting damselflies and dragonflies on our ponds or helping take part in the Great British Bee Count. Come meet some of your wild six-legged neighbours!

And to find out more about local wild insects, you can visit our Wildlife at Mudchute flickr pool and find out more about the moths, butterflies and other minibeasts of Mudchute in these illustrated guides.
