Busy Bees wildlife shelters

In June the Busy Bees learnt about hedgehogs and how we can encourage and protect them in our gardens. Working in teams in the Old House garden they built two wildlife shelters with an area for hedgehogs underneath.

Hidden in the churchyard is a hedgehog house which we hope will be inhabited as we know there are hedgehogs in the area.

We are very grateful to Robin Muscat for providing the materials, designing the shelters, and showing the children how to build them.

The session ended with ended with us all eating a hedgehog cake and celebrating the Busy Bees’ second birthday.
