Originally an enclosed deer park used exclusively for private hunting, Hyde Park is now a popular urban forest with over three thousand trees, with the most common species being the London Plane and Sweet Chestnut.
In this post alone, we cover over 40 types of critters you may be able to spot in the green fields of Hyde Park. The variety of wildlife you can expect to see includes birds, wildfowl, insects, butterflies, bats (yes, really!), foxes, and of course the usual suspects, squirrels and pigeons.
All of the diverse flora and fauna work together in the park to create a unique ecosystem right in the middle of the city. We also cover a couple of must-visit areas within the park itself: the Wildflower Meadows, Kensington Gardens, the Hudson Memorial Bird Sanctuary and the Rose Garden.
