After driving this week nearly 200 miles throughout Herefordshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Surrey, West Sussex and East Sussex, I saw for mile after mile the same depressing site came again and again- no home for wildlife and animals. Every field was pushed to the roadside to make way for giant machines for profit. This is unsustainable, cruel, greedy and selfish. Man is not the only creature living in Southeast England but -unfortunately- he is the most powerful. So, surely, even more reason for him to create boundaries for living spaces for these other creature.
This relentless push by an inefficient, cost heavy, agriculture system with its enormous machines surely needs to be halted by government legislation. Forcing the creation of wildlife corridors, nesting areas and sanctuaries upon the farmers. A good start would be the enforcement of the replanting of the lost hedgerows ponds and coppices.
