Too early cutting back of hedgerows in the autumn deprives wild birds of crucial sources of food in autumn and winter.  Strategic changes in the timing of these activities would have an immediate beneficial effect.

Farmers applying for grants in relation to hedgerows and buffer zones, under the environmental stewardship section of the Basic Payment Scheme, should be required to carry out an appropriate strategy.
