There’s a newish estate in Bracknell where all of the roads are named after birds. Each of the signs has a picture of the bird and a QR code, which takes you to the relevant page on the RSPB website.
Apparently, this was all the idea of a local councilor, perhaps to make up for building on a relatively nice bit of farmland.
The names range from the mundane Linnet Close (where house prices have slumped) to the excitement of Spoonbill Rise, Capercaillie Close, and Ptarmigan Heights. But best of all, between these last two, at RG12 8AT, is Harrier Way where house prices are expected to boom – unless of course the houses mysteriously ‘disappear‘.
Perhaps Henry’s search for a home providing a nice ringtail with whom to settle down and plenty of food is over. In addition to four ring-tails (one on each of four signs), Pipit Green and (black) Grouse Meadows are nearby.
My thanks to Mike Coker for pointing me in this direction.
