I still continue to observe and jot down notes, and this blog remains a place to put links etc into. Unfortunately I do not have time and energy to DO a lot.
the verge, bank, and hedge have been scalped along the A478, I suspect all for the Urdd Eisteddfod.

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.
