Conservation area - coming soon to Knockhatch
October 2018 - Work has just started on a conservation area here at Knockhatch. It’s located by the entrance to the outdoor Owl Enclosures and Enchanted Forest Crazy Golf. We’re building the following:
- Bat House, a cosy safe home for a family of bats
- Wild Bee Hive, to help increase the number of bee colonies
- Wildlife Pond, an area for wildlife to drink and bathe
- Reptile Rockery, to provide cover and a basking site
At Knockhatch we designed and built a bug mansion which you can see outside our owl sanctuary. The multi-storey bug mansion is full of all sorts of natural materials for the perfect home for different varieties of creatures that visit. In return they might even keep pests away! The best materials to use for a bug mansion are straw, hay, dead wood, dry sticks, rich potted plants, upside down pots, bundles of garden canes, stones, bricks, old roof tiles, just to name a few. If you visit the RSPB website you can get a lot of useful information about how you can build your own.
