Newington Cemetery is my local bit of urban wilderness. The cemetery was opened in 1846 and is one of Edinburgh's fantastic garden cemeteries. In the last few decades the cemetery has become a green oasis full of wildlife. There are foxes and many birds including woodpeckers and owls. I am most interested in insects and macro photography. So this page documents the insects I have spotted in the cemetery.
I am by no means an expert on insects but I have tried to identify them as best as I could. The flies in particular are very tricky. So please feel free to point out any inaccuracies.
