Wild About Gardens Week Ranger Visit

This week is Wild about Gardens Week which is all about gardening for wildlife. This years theme is Bats so we had a very special visit from a Countryside Ranger from Bowhill who told us all about why bats are important and how they can play a part in helping us to have a happy healthy garden.

We built bat boxes

and Michael showed us how to find signs that bats are roosting, we searched through Lucky’s wood to find the best trees to put our bat boxes on making sure we didn’t disturbed any bats that were already there.

It was a great afternoon and we all learned lots of things about bats thank you Michael.
