Visiting deer is encouraging sign for church wildlife

This restful visitor to a churchyard is the latest sign of its success in attracting wildlife.

The churchyard at St Andrew's in Church Aston has been a focus for the committee and the volunteers during lockdown, who have installed trails, a nature noticeboard and an orchard.

'No-mow May' has been another initiative encouraging biodiversity. Letting grass grow long can help bees, butterflies and other wildlife.

At least one four-legged neighbour has taken notice, and this deer was spotted resting in the long grass this week.

There are frequent updates on the projects at St Andrew's online. Visit to learn more.
