WildCookham Pages

Who are we?
Local people taking care of wildlife and sharing our passion and knowledge in a practical and fun way in the parish of Cookham.

What is our vision?
By 2019 we will have a Cookham plan for wildlife and nature that stands alongside, and has equal status to, the Village Design Statement and is adopted by the Parish Council and the borough planners.

What are we doing?
• Planning a calendar of local events and activities such as guided walks and talks
• Running practical campaigns and initiatives to enrich habitats such as:
o Wildlife and natural gardening – educating people about the importance of their gardens and creating wildlife corridors through gardens for hedgehogs and many other animals. Promoting the use of natural and non-chemical substances in the garden.
o Leaving verges and meadows long, not cutting until after flowers have seeded, and planting wildflowers on verges as food sources for bees and other insects
o Not cutting hedges and trees between Feb and Aug while birds are still nesting
o Securing habitat and nest boxes for certain birds such as House Martins and encouraging the use of Swift bricks in new-build properties
o Reducing light pollution
• Updating the Cookham Wildlife web pages on cookham.com
• Offering wildlife advice and building a community of interest through a dedicated wildlife forum on cookham.com
