why we need to cherish our birds :(

I’ve been doing a bit of birding at my little nature patch in llangurig. Watching the returning curlews and looking out for the hobbies 🙂

It looks like this is coming to a bit of a sad end though as plans have been passed to put a road and windfarm through the nesting site. I (wrongly) thought that the law would protect our birds, especially something as precious as the curlew. Turns out that is not the case sadly. The developers have been “allowed” to net a badger sett, net a hedge, and they refuse to accept the presence of nesting birds. I guess this is a salutory tale about how we need to defend what we have. I don’t want to post an off topic or political post but I know some of you will want to know what’s going on with our local wildlife. The site ,which is upland/ moorland is likely supporting other treasures that we see in Radnorshire but it very un-surveyed. If you know the area, one of the people in the village has a facebook page about it called Save the Badgers from Bryn Blaen Windfarm

If anyone fancies a reccy of what is nesting in the area before they start, this weekend is free 🙂
