Simon Pain has built a number of Bug Hotels at Billow Farm which provide a natural environment for a variety of wildlife. The Bug Hotels received praise from Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group (FWAG) when Simon Pain won the 2011 Silver Pintail Award. The video shows the bug hotels and Hazel Pain explains how they are constructed and is assisted by school children, on one of the regular school visits to Billow Farm, to add more materials to a Bug Hotel. Simon Pain explains how a smaller one can be constructed by children.
A resident of the hotel is found – it is a mouse, who is shown to all the children before being returned to his home.
