Planet Earth 30: Fauna at Kelvingrove Park, Glasgow


These photos were captured at Kelvingrove Park, next to University of Glasgow campus. These quick shots were taken during my short visit to the university.

Kelvingrove was originally created as the West End Park in 1852 by English gardener Sir Joseph Paxton, whose other works included The Crystal Palace in London. The park is 34 hectares in size. Strategic location of the park makes it a popular route for commuters to the city centre, leading quickly from the West End to Charing Cross whilst avoiding traffic. The park is also popular with dog-walkers, and students from the University.

It straddles the River Kelvin and as such is an urban haven for wildlife. Birds found in the area include the grey heron, cormorant, and kingfisher, the mallard and goosander, and other animals include the red fox, brown rat and otters.
