Coming to a hedge near you – followed by a future where people live in flats, overlooking tarmac, never hearing any bird song.
Developers do this to prevent birds nesting on development sites. This means they can get round laws protecting birds during the nesting period. If there are no birds nesting, the hedgerows can be ripped out at any time. Hedgerows that have flourished for hundreds of years are destroyed for development.
Wildlife can also get trapped in these nets. Any hedgehogs hibernating or living in the hedges become trapped inside or can get tangled in the netting itself. It reduces foraging available for wildlife.
We can change this future. The need for new homes does not have to mean the destruction of habitat and wildlife. There are ways to live in harmony with nature.
We all benefit from living in harmony with nature. I know you know this so please sign the petition https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/244233…
