Situated in a corner of the school grounds, the new Wildlife Learning Area borders a graveyard, which then backs onto Hartshill Hayes. It is marked in orange on this plan.
When I joined the school, the area had already been fenced and a pond built with decked pond-dipping area….
With a mature mixed hedge and a couple of mature trees, it already has some of the ingredients needed to attract wildlife.
It is virtually a blank canvas and it will be great to look back at these images in a year’s time!
