Students Create Safe Haven For Broomfield Hall ‘Residents’

Level three Countryside Management students have created two important habitats for insects and amphibians at Broomfield Hall.

The students have constructed a hibernaculum and an insect log. Both habitats will provide food and shelter over the coming months and will help various species of cold blooded creatures survive harsh winters.

Derby College Countryside Management Lecturer Paul Foskett explained: “This has been a very enjoyable way for the students to complete an important part of their course relating to freshwater and wetland management and we will be monitoring the sites over the coming months to see what insects and amphibians are attracted to them.”
