Hackney Marshes: Wildlife Survey and Management Plan 2004, by M.W. Hanson et al
This survey was commisisioned in 2003 by Hackney Biodiversity Partnership. Thanks to them for permission to reproduce the results of the survey.
The report identifies the different habitats of Hackney Marshes, some areas of which are no longer open to the public owing to the 2012 Olympics development, and covers the flora and fauna recorded there during 2004. It concludes with recommendations for future management of the area and further surveys.
There is an error on page 67 of the report, notified by one of the authors:
Under Further Surveys - 6. North Meadow, the fourth sentence should read:
The meadow, with its rich flora, is a good invertebrate site, and the location of the rare but distinctive Tachnid Fly Cistogaster globosa – a Red Data Book 1 species.
Also, on page 68, fourth line:
Cytiomya continua should read Cistogaster globosa.
