Comfy Bugs

EFP66

Otley & Easton College are undertaking a longterm project in our woodlands at Easton to regenerate them into an educational space. They are taking surveys of the mammals and invertebrates and doing all sorts of testing and activities and we look forward to sharing their data with everyone soon.

We have lots of woodland habitat for bugs around the farm with logs and tree stumps, but the College recently ran a competition in conjunction with Orford Primary School to design a bug hotel for the farm. There were some amazing entries, some with saunas, spas and even lifts for the bugs to get up and down the various levels in the intricate designs. The winner was Alexandra and her bug hotel, Hotel Florimonte, has been erected in our picnic area.

The College project is called the Willie Kerr Woodland Project, named after my grandfather, who was the first winner of the Farming & Wildlife Advisory Group Conservation Award for Suffolk, with his pioneering conservation work on the farm.
