The scene adjacent to the embankment area
Shaved to the fence
Looks pretty severe but it will grow back
A bit of work is going to carried out at my beloved patch over the next few months largely designed to make the place more attractive to wildlife and the users of the area.
The powers that be claim that the grassland area will be made part of the local nature reserve in the New Year. I dearly hope that happens so that the breeding Meadow Pipits have a bit more protection. We have the closest colony of this essentially rural bird to central London.
I'm so proud to have them breeding on my patch.
