the verge, bank, and hedge have been scalped along the A478, I suspect all for the Urdd Eisteddfod. I have asked Pembrokeshire County Council if, with regard to verge cutting, they have a biodiversity policy, they said we start cutting banks in July. For health & safety some junctions and verges cut before that. If you ask questions about verge cutting you are put in touch with the team in your area, not someone with over all care of biodiversity etc.
It is illegal for farmers to cut hedges at this time of the year because it is illegal to disturb nesting birds.
