A national project to bring life back to our hedgerows has received the backing of nature volunteers.
The Great British Hedgerow Survey #HealthyHedgerows, launched last week, is being run by the People’s Trust for Endangered Species (PTES).
But members of wildlife groups Wild Maidenhead and WildCookham are ahead of the game – having started their hedgerow surveying and restoration programme a year ago.
Both groups are looking for more volunteers to help out.
Team leader Rob Acker, from Cookham, said: “Hedges are a key part of our landscape, whether it is in your own or a neighbouring garden, or in the countryside around us.
“Healthy hedges support wildlife, with food, shelter or simply corridors allowing animals to move safely.
“They are a key part of our local ecology and we must support them.”
