This weekend Jon Trail from Yorkshire Wildlife Trust came and gave a talk to the older Kilnwick Parklings and adults about wildlife enhancement at The Park.
When Jon first came to The Park around a year ago, he made recommendations about wildlife enhancement which we followed. CJ Wildlife (trading as www.birdfood.co.uk) very kindly donated us 2 Insect Hotels, 6 Bat boxes, 2 Barn own boxes, 1 Kestrel box, 10 Great Tit/Sparrow boxes, 4 Blue Tit boxes and 2 open fronted Robin boxes (as per Jon's advice for our site).
On Friday night, Jon walked us around The Park advising us on how best to position these bird and bat boxes. He also advised us on wetland habitat creation, bird feeding and wildflower meadows. Absolutely fascinating and really helpful. We are hugely grateful to Jon for his ongoing support and to CJ Wildlife for donating the equipment that Jon was keen for us to install at The Park.
This is where you can find all the latest updates on the Park project - from the organisers.
