Here at Kingsbrook, we’re opening our arms to welcome in wildlife to complete our community.
As part of our partnership with the RSPB, Kingsbrook has been fully surveyed by the RSPB to ensure it’s the ideal environment for all kinds of wildlife, and will be closely monitored by the charity for the foreseeable future to make sure we’re doing all we can to provide safe and sustainable homes for wildlife.
Together, Kingsbrook and the RSPB want to make sure that our wildlife community love living at Kingsbrook as much as our residents do!
At Kingsbrook, we have planted a wide range of trees, shrubs and flowers, each carefully chosen to provide our wildlife residents with shelter, shade and food as well as beauty for residents.
Around the site, you'll see everything from trees and hedges lining the avenues to fruit trees and wildflowers in our open spaces, providing an injection of colour and vibrancy for your enjoyment.
At Kingsbrook, you're never more than a few minutes' walk away from water, whether near a pond, stream or swale.
Not only do we want to make sure that fish, frogs and ducks all have a place to live, we also want to provide a beautiful and sustainable area for our residents to walk or picnic by the waterside.
At Kingsbrook we are immensely proud of our “Hedgehog Highways”. It is a sad fact that the number of hedgehogs in the UK are decreasing, so it’s our job to give them a place to live and prosper. An easy way to achieve this is by giving them the freedom to roam the site as and when they choose.
This is where our wildlife highways and corridors come in. Kingsbrook has been designed to allow animals to move freely across our parks, avenues, streams and open spaces. A large proportion of our gardens at Kingsbrook have a small hole at the base of their garden fence, which allows small animals like hedgehogs to move easily from garden to garden.
Kingsbrook’s nature-rich area will be a protected area of land which allows wildlife, flora and fauna to flourish. From your chosen vantage point in one of our observation posts, you will be able to see everything from flowers, butterflies, insects and birds just as nature intended.
A selection of the homes around the Kingsbrook site have been specially fitted with 'swift bricks' and 'bat boxes', which are special nestboxes.
If your home has been selected to host one of these special nests, we will explain everything to you when you move in - but don't worry, you don't need to do anything!
The addition of swift bricks, bat boxes and house martin cups are just our way to make sure every kind of animal has a home.View Downloads
