Putting the final touches to your bonfire?

Look out for hedgehogs, frogs, toads, newts, slow worms, common lizards and grass snakes.  Log piles and leaves are the perfect places for hibernating animals and they will usually be buried right at the bottom so it’s best to build your bonfire on the day you plan to light it .

It’s still possible to have a fun fireworks display without disturbing wildlife, just takes a bit of care and common sense.
