Over the years commuting by train its been nice to watch the annual changes in the countryside and how the roe move arround. One highlight on my daily journey is a small negelected orhard, it cannot be more than an acre with a dozen or so old apple trees. it has tall hedges and adjoins to railway bank. It has a resident population of roe and I have seen up to seven at a time, often feeding or couched down. It appeared untouched. Sadly this week the fruit trees have been felled and the area looks like its being cleared. So sad to see a little secluded ares destroyed.
It will be of intrest to see what happens next
