Wild Life in Kingswells

In your garden

Kingswells has more than its fair share of green cooridors, ponds, streams and other areas idea for wildlife.  And most residents have a garden or access to a green area.  So here are a few tips taken from Scottish Wild LIfe Trust  of things that can be done in your garden to allow wild life to thrive.

  • Wildlife needs four things if it is to thrive in your garden - food, water, shelter and a place to breed. By providing some - if not all - of these things you will bring your garden to life. The Scottish Wild Life Trust have some ideas on how to get started and how to make a difference for wildlife, whatever the size of your garden. Alternatively, you can download their wildlife gardening leaflet for more information.

Spotting Wilf Life

The deer that we see around Kingswells will probably be either Red Deer or Roe Deer. The website  http://www.jakes-bones.com/2010/10/how-to-tell-red-and-roe-deer-apart.html. helps you tell the difference.

The foxes that are found in Britain are Red Foxes. There are loads of different animals that could be around – badgers, buzzards, kestrels, bats, squirrels and any number of garden birds, insects and wildflowers. 

Ispot is a handy website http://www.ispot.org.uk/ you can upload you wildlife pictures and pretty quickly someone will let you know what it is. There is also a wildlife section on the website http://scottishwildlifetrust.org.uk/visit/wildlife/ which may be useful.
