New shrubs planted in London Colney’s Naspbury Park are hoped to encourage nesting birds into the area.

The saplings were planted by students at St Bernadetteā€™s Primary School with the help of Hertfordshire County Council’s rural estate team as a part of National Tree Week.

The previously derelict eight acres will now host a range of broadleaf species, which includes oak and hornbeam.

It was part of National Tree Week (NTW), and the funds for the trees were covered by a Woodland Creation Grant Scheme by Natural England and the Forestry Commission.
