The new marina in Greystones opened in 2013, however a planned development of apartments at the location hasn't gone ahead in our NAMA enabled times
The good news is that the patch of wasteland destined to be urbanised has been left fallow and nature has moved in.
I thought it would be interesting to take a look at this exclusion zone as seen behind the marina area and examine what species have rewilded the old builders yard. The area has been fenced off from humans and (perhaps) predators and below are some of the species of plants that I have seen so far. A few garden escapees.
