I had been inspired by the RSPB's display at Gardeners World Live
RSPB's Wildlife Stack having also seen those fantastic 'Wildlife 5* Hotels at Chelsea, I decided I had to do something.
I always have junk lieing around my garden so I could at least make a start!
I chose where I am going to put it:- on top of the coal bunkers, and before you say, I know frogs won't be able to hide in the bottom of it, there is no worries here, as most of them hibernate behind the coal bunkers anyway! So this is really for the 'Creepy Crawlies'.
This is West facing and is sheltered by my 'Bay Tree' and behind and through the slats of the fence is a wonderful beech hedge swarming with greenfly!!!
So I've used bricks and old pallets cut up. I had some roofing felt and tiles, marine plywood, bamboo canes, old none working pens, shredded paper, cardboard and dried leaves. I also had some logs and need to drill a few holes into them.
Obviously I have more to do but you can see how simple it is and I have only been outside for the morning!
