National Trust hedges at Tyntesfield interfered with and flailed during bird nesting season

March 19,
2010

If the National Trust at Tyntesfield were hoping that flailing and
cutting back the hedges during bird nesting season was going to go unnoticed,
they were wrong.

Regular commuters on the Nailsea bus into Bristol have informed us that
hedges have been cut back, presumably in readiness for the Estate to be opened
to the public this weekend.

 

The RSPB told us that it would not recommended doing this after March as this
was now the nesting season.

 

Knowingly interfering with birds nests during this time is a criminal
offence.

 

It appears the National Trust never learn.
