Marl Hole Create new environments for insects, Invertebrates, Birds and bats to thrive

Invertebrate banks

We will install a bee bank to provide a warm, sheltered patch of ground where solitary bees can nest. This will promote the trapping of heat and a variety of micro-climates for nesting bees.

Hibernacula

We will create a pile of logs, earth and stone. This will provide structural variation within the site and enhance prey availability for fauna such as reptiles, mammals and invertebrates.

Bird and bat boxes

We will look to install bird boxes, owl and bat boxes to provide areas to nest and roost.

40% - In Progress

Oct 2019 – Romsley Parish Council have built the 1st stages of Hibernacula using materials accumulated as part of the clean up of the site. We used our own maintenance personnel for this task.
