Bug hotels

The bugs of Grove Piece would like to thank the children from Wenhaston School for making such impressive bug hotels.

On a rainy day in March, a group of volunteers – teacher and children, parents, carers and a few dogs – trudged along muddy paths to Grove Piece to make one huge bug hotel and individual smaller ones to take home. No stone was left unturned in the children’s search for sticks, from hollow stemmed twigs for stuffing into cardboard rolls to heavy logs and fallen branches.  Children used a saw to cut larger pieces to size.  They drilled holes before piling them up and finishing the hotel off with a cosy thatched roof of dried grass.

Blyth Woods monitor the wildlife in Grove Piece and report sightings on the website.  We wonder what bugs will be checking in to the Wenhaston Ritz…
