Hedgehog Box at Old Moor

Nest Box Week– if you are able to do some DIY but can’t get on the garden at this time of the year, there are lots of possibilities in addition to Bird Boxes. Bat boxes are even easier to make and how about this Hedgehog Box at Old Moor. Sian and I had great fun making a much simpler one a few years ago out of scraps of wood and twigs. Or something like this insect feature in a garden we visited last year- the more insects, the more birds, anyway. Much simpler designs can be found on line, or bought from suppliers. Conditions: A mild, misty day. Temperature: Max 7- Min 5c.
