Whilst it didn't directly effect my walk, what got my back up was the incompetence of Dinton Pastures Countryside Service (DPCS).
Take a look at this shot, everything left of the path used to be 1 metre high grass, nettles and other weeds. But oh no, DPCS ground staff who are obviously clueless to their obligations to the countryside...odd because the clue is in their name, decided I need to mow everything here because otherwise the dogs won't have enough space to sh1t and pi55, or run about. F*ck the ground nesting birds like Whitethroat, or Chiffchaff and even more damaging the very important Nightingales nesting just yards away.
Can you tell I'm mad about this?
Oh and if that wasn't bad enough they repeated their rampage around BSL's edges adjacent to Middle Marsh and entrance to Sandford.
For those too stupid to grasp the difference between where cutting the grass and vegetation should and shouldn't be done here it is for you;
Below is a yes, you can cut here, it's given away by the presence of a bench...
So here is a quiz for anyone thinking of doing the same nearby to the DAC there is this stretch of uncut vegetation shown below
This has breeding Whitethroat in it and if you cut it I will personally see to it that you are sued under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981. Like you should need me to tell you about it, but clearly someone in charge of ground works needs a reminder.
