Covid-19 - Staying at Home

Published by Evergreen Insurance on 23rd March 2020 -

A slightly different post from us this week.

It's a difficult time for the world with everybody being asked to stay at home. At Evergreen, insurance is our business but nature is our passion. We give up to 25% of our commission back to animal and wildlife charities. We are currently working from home and isolating.

If you are at home and love nature, here are some of the things you can do to turn our garden into a wildlife sanctuary...

Hedgehog shelters - Hedgehogs are in decline so please give them a home. A pile of leaves in the corner of the garden where they won't be disturbed is the perfect home for them. Just be sure to leave them alone between November and March when they hibernate.

Bird boxes - Place these on trees or on the side of your house to give birds a shelter and even add a camera. There is more information on the RSPB website.

Ponds or water features - These are perfect for amphibians like frogs and newts which live and breed in the water, but birds who fancy a bath will also benefit. 

Bird feeders - Fill your feeder with bird food in the spring to help newly born chicks. Protein-packed seeds are good for winter. Always place near a dense bush to give smaller birds a hiding place from predators.

Fence holes - Mammals like rabbits and hedgehogs won’t be able to get into your garden if it’s fenced off, so create little gaps for them on all sides. This will allow them to pass through without any problems.

Just a few ideas here some which we are trying out ourselves.

Stay safe and stay home.
