Local Writer Stops Council Hedge Cutting

This small, local action was carried out on the spur of the moment, but worked and probably saved the lives of hundreds of nesting birds and other inhabitants of the hedgerow ecology. Just goes to show that anyone can do it if they care enough - you don't always need chains and tubes.
