Near where I live, in a place called Whorlton, there is the most fantastic starling murmuration. I haven't seen one before and was absolutely amazed - they were right over our heads (fortunately I was wearing a coat with a hood!) However, where they roost is on private land and the owner wants to pull the hedges down. I've just done a bit of research and it sounds like all avenues are being explored as the MP and County Council are involved. It is fantastic - I highly recommend seeing it - and want to check if anyone has any advice about what I should do

Sadly, money talks and nature walks....
Yours is a plight I've heard all too often, and then folk wonder why so many species are in decline.
Fingers crossed planners and councillors see sense, but I have my reservations if our local council, (especially now HS2 is being railroaded through here) is anything to go by.
