Tweet of the Day

Uncategorized

I’m delighted to present my first episode of BBC Radio 4’s Tweet of the Day! A short account of the yellowhammers that live on our farm, who I regularly meet when cycling into work in the early morning. Sadly, most people are surprised to hear how many yellowhammers we have at the farm as they are declining rapidly elsewhere in Britain. Fortunately our local farmers engage with government schemes for wildlife stewardship, and take steps to make their farms wildlife friendly, including the preservation of wild borders around fields and reducing the use of pesticides. This means our yellowhammers have a safe place to live and breed, and I get to listen to them all day long! You can find the original link to this episode here.
