|This was some of the patch in 2004|
|One of our patches the same year... but not seen them here for around two years.|
We think the coypus have had them.
But dumping it into a gap beside the river, whilst convenient for the farmer [or contractor?] is no substitute for proper management.
|In the same place, but on the riverbank in 2004 were these Purple Toothwort|
The destruction of wildlife corridors leads to isolation of species and their eventual disappearance. All along the Aigronne at the moment, there is a mass clearance of all the old trees.... especially the poplars... and we will be blogging about this in the next few days and explaining why the way it is currently being done is a bad way of proceeding if it is to benefit wildlife.
If it is just being done for the fisher folk is is a sad thing.
