New nature reserve gets underway in Camridgeshire

A little patch of Cambridgeshire is being dedicated to wildlife, thanks to a partnership between Cambridge University Press, and the Wildlife Trust. CUP is turning half an acre of its land into a conservation area, and work oficially began on the project yesterday, with trees for a new orchard being planted and the installation of bat and hedgehog boxes.

Upcoming plans include further building and installation of ‘hedgehog hotels’, which are ground level havens providing warmth and shelter in the winter months, bat boxes and bird feeders. Natural seating areas made from dead trees felled from the area will be built, which will also provide an ideal area for insects to thrive and small creatures to hide.
