Buzz of excitement as Lancaster park's new guests fly in

Moss Wood

The family owners of a Lancaster holiday park, Moss Wood are welcoming thousands of extra guests this year – and they'll not be paying a penny for their food and lodging.

That's because Moss Wood Caravan Park in Cockerham is now a safe haven for honey bees which have been dropping dramatically in number over recent years.

The wildlife-friendly park took delivery in May of three traditional timber hives which, in the summer months, could become the home for more than 100,000 honey bees.

Their thriving future at Moss Wood, says the park's Henry Wild, is almost a certainty thanks to the large number of high nectar-bearing blooms in its grounds.
