How do you define a browse line? Is it where bushes are eaten from ground up and/or where shrubs are eaten down to the ground?
I've been trying to persuade the farmer where I shoot bunnies that he has too many munties, as there is nothing growing in the spinnies and small wooded areas other than nettles and they are bare within with no wild flowers anywhere. There is clear evidence of foliage being chewed down to ground level and every time I go out I see or hear them!!
They also have a lot of hawthorn hedges between fields that are bare in certain areas up to about 2 1/2ft high from the ground. The more I look around the less new growth I see and considering it's a 1000 acres I don't remember once snagging meself on a bramble!!!
I've also seen more roe lately but less evidence of browsing higher up, but then I'm still learning so maybe am unable to spot the right signs as yet!
