This year we had plenty of new bird boxes to put up, and our gardener David did a fabulous job of it. Now there are plenty of new safe places for the beautiful birds of Hawthorns Caravan Park, with 30 bird boxes in total.
Wildflowers for Bees
Birds weren’t the only wildlife in Hawthorns Park to get a nice bonus. We’re doing our bit for the bees by making sure there are plenty of wildflowers around the park which not only pretty up the place, but also provide lots of delicious nectar for our buzzy friends.
This is all part of the British Beekeepers Association and David Bellamy conservation award scheme ‘Honey Bee Pledge’, supporting honey bees in Britain. You can do your part too by ‘Gardening for Bees’. Learn how on the British Beekeepers Association website.
