While walking up my hill – past the scenes of devastation where they have mown the wide verges, I saw a sign at the entrance to a field. So I went and had a look.
The ultimate in irony:
The sign was about how wonderfully they were managing the land and providing habitat for wildlife such as the grey partridge.
It says that the chicks need plenty of insects and seed.
To the left of the sign was the wide verge that had been mown flat – destroying all the habitat full of insects and seed.
To the right of it was the field freshly ploughed with no strips of wildland for the partridges, no stubble, no seed, no insects.
Was this some kind of sick joke???
No wonder nature is taking such a battering!!
