The swallows we have here are called barn swallows and they like to nest in barns. Not everyone has a barn but you might have a garage, shed, or other outhouse which you think they might enjoy going into.
Although toads tend to return to the pond in which they were born, we can help and encourage them into our gardens by creating a small pond or ‘watery walkway’.
If you want to see which moths are visiting your garden at night you could set up a simple moth trap.
Bees like lots of different types of plant and so having a good variety is important.
Gardens can be great habitats for hedgehogs but they also like to travel and may move up to 1 mile in 1 night! Fences and walls can therefore become problematic barriers to them.
Historically swifts used to nest inside holes in trees and rocky crevices but since Roman times they have made use of buildings, nesting in places like eaves and holes in walls, so much so that you rarely find them nesting anywhere else nowadays.
