Hedgerow

-

"Having collected animals all over the world, I am always amazed at the rich variety of wildlife you can find in an ordinary hedge in the English countryside. ... Once the hedgerows were considered vitally important and they were carefully maintained so that man and wild creatures benefited from them. ... In time, the hedgerow will be a thing of the past and a lovely and important part of Britain's heritage will have vanished.

" ... when this hedgerow had been laid down, the Tower of London and Westminster Abbey had still to be built. It is amazing, the reverence which these two buildings are accorded and yet the hedgerows of England, which for a thousand years have been doing so much good for man and nature are being bulldozed out of existence with only the faintest outcry against this unbiological outcry."
