Hello, I'll try to be brief.
My local golf course closed its doors 5 years ago. Since then the area has been allowed to rewild. Giving off all manor of colourful natural wild flowers. And in return, attracting wildlife. The area lies next to huge ancient woodland.
Most notably some huge birds of prey appeared this year. I've done some research and think they are Buzzards.
They are magnificent and have a distinctive call.
Anyway, my point. The council is now considering plans to turn the golf course into a bike park.
Is there anything that can be done to protect the birds and stop them moving on. As I fear once the diggers move In and they start the planned felling of trees, these birds will perish.
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
