Queens Park Billericay: 60 acres of former amenity parkland, now managed to enhance the area for wildlife.

The large meadow area is developing a diversity of wild flowers since it is cut for hay once a year. Green Woodpeckers are commonly seen in the meadow feeding on ants. The islands of trees and the mature hedgerows offer feeding and nesting opportunities for thrushes, finches and warblers, as well as a host of insect species.

An area of rough grass with scrub is important for small mammals. Kestrels can often be seen hovering overhead, on the lookout for mice and voles. A newly planted woodland is at present providing a similar habitat but will develop very differently as the trees mature.
