Lakenheath Fen nature reserve is inviting people to find out more about how they can help wildlife in and around the home.

It is opening its doors on Sunday, between 11.30am-1.30pm for a hands-on workshop to find out which plants are good for butterflies and which for birds, and how to make nest boxes and attract bumble bees. There will also be a chance to win some seeds to help start a wildlife garden.

Kirsty Nutt, RSPB information officer at Lakenheath, said: “This is a fantastic way for people to find out about the small things we can all do to make our homes a better place for wildlife. The combined area of gardens in the UK is greater than that of nature reserves, so conservation really does need to start at home”

Last October, the RSPB launched Homes for Wildlife, a new initiative inspiring people to make a difference for the wildlife that shares the open spaces closest to people.
