We had a great time painting bird boxes and making insect feeding stations and insect hotels!
Even the weather smiled on us! Many thanks to Emma for organising the event, and Caroline and Sandy for helping her, especially as Sandy didn’t feel very well. Sandy and Emma also worked out how to make insect hotels and feeding stations (I’d never heard of either!)
Mark has very kindly collected suitable, untreated, wood for us from The Mayflower project (they are rebuilding the famous ship) in Harwich:
“I’ve got the back of the car full of offcuts from The Mayflower in Harwich. Loads of nice untreated oak for bat, bird and bug boxes.” (FB post, 11th July)
