Our Attempts at a Biodiverse Plot and Garden.
Our gardens and allotment plots offer wildlife a refuge when many wild habitats are being reduced. Read how we try to make our garden and allotment plot a wildlife friendly environment
Bird Nesting Box Cam
In February 2011 we put up a new nesting box which has a camera installed so we can view life inside a nest box. This link takes you to another of our web sites where we have created a diary on what went on inside.
Why Make a Log Pile?
As we had acquired a pile of sawn off tree stumps and branches on site, we decided to create a log pile under a large evergreen shrub
Making a Solitary Bee Motel
Unlike the social honey bees and bumble bees that live in communities most bees live solitary lives. There are more than 200 species of solitary bees found in Britain. Some solitary bees nest in holes in the ground and others in hollow stems or holes in wood. This bee motel was one of several made from an ash tree log.
Look after the birds and they'll help you to look after your garden
Our garden has always been a place to share with wildlife. Being either nocturnal or too small to be able to observe without making an effort, lots of our wildlife visitors will go more or less unnoticed for much of the time leaving only traces of their presence. Birds, however, will readily adopt a garden as a favourite service station if they are provided with the essentials food, water and places to nest and shelter.
Planning a wildlife garden
By creating a wild life garden you are not just providing a much needed habitat for our native wild life
