Building a Bug Hotel

Bored during the COVID-19 lockdown? Why not try your hand at building a Bug Hotel. If you don’t have any tools present, no matter! You can build one with no equipment and using just a few old bricks. Some good fillers for your hotel include: moss, pinecones, twigs, bamboo and dried leaf matter. Go on … You’ll certainly produce some micro smiles!

BBC Radio 4 Costing the Earth

It was an absolute honour and lifelong dream to be interviewed for BBC Radio 4’s Costing the Earth back in the summer for an episode aired in November called Thames Revival.

Within the episode I speak about my current project Estuary Edges, which aims to replace brick, concrete and metal tidal walls with natural habitat to encourage biodiversity and SuDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems) along the River Thames.

I also talk about the fact that if we replenish and revive habitat in urban areas, nature will return!
