Wild attraction

Bats could be swooping through the dusky skies above Queens Park Gardens, in London, after the creation of a new urban wildlife haven yards from a densely populated housing estate.

The wildlife area, which features a wildflower meadow, native hedgerow, living willow dome and stag beetle loggery, was opened on Sunday (16 March). Experts hope that some of the City of Westminster's estimated 30,000 bats will be drawn to the wildlife haven.
