RSPB Hope Farm, Cambridgeshire

The RSPB account of their 20 year adventure to reintroduce farming methods which encouraged the return of huge numbers of endangered farmland birds is so encouraging.  I grew up in the 1950s in Orkney where my grandparents had a small 30 acre mixed arable/beef farm.  I remember the haunting call of curlews, lapwings and sweet nightingales overhead which still give me great joy.  It was a time when their farming methods would now be called mainly organic but a time when farming and nature seemed to co-exist happily and naturally.  How can we get back some semblance of making room for nature among our farming communities on a large scale?  Any ideas what would make a major impression?
