  • Newbourne Tetney Pitstone hill
  • Did you know that size doesn’t matter, diversity does Our work with the British Trust for Ornithology has shown that it is not the size of the site that matters it is the variety of habitats that limits the biodiversity – add habitats to increase biodiversity Central Labs are thinning and coppicing trees in their grounds. This improves biodiversity and is allowing more sunlight into the building thus reducing the need to use lights. They are also creating areas for insects and birds, putting up bird feeders and installing nest boxes.
