One hundred yards of uncut hedge

 WE drove around Pembrokeshire looking for berries friuits and nuts, foods for wildlife
 Mile after mile of hedges flailed to the ground, no shelter or food value at all.
We sat by this hedge and counted over one hundred birds  feeding. Black birds thrushes field fares  redwing , many small birds.
All other hedges were deserted no birds at all, magpies in the fields only.
SOLUTION
Pass a law to make it mandatory to cut only half the hedges on any property per year. To start we could make the Transport Agency and the County Councils cut only one side of every road per this will make it possible to allow wildlife to survive the winter. It must be done soon before we have lost indigenous and migratory birds for ever.
