The weather is still breaking records, with sizzling August temperatures!  It’s been so hot farmers in Arkesden have already started harvesting- in fact it started so early this year the children hadn’t even broken up from school!

With these crazy temperatures, please make sure you’re putting out water for the birds, they desperately need it.

Did you know that as well as bird numbers in huge decline- insect numbers have also decreased?

Did you also know that insects make up 70% of all animal species and have been on the Earth 1000 times longer than humans?

Insects matter as about a third of the Worlds crops reply on bees, flies and other insects for pollination. More generally, insects play a crucial role in the most ecosystems- if insects were to disappear the environment would collapse into chaos.
