Wildlife at the boundaries

HEDGEROWS are an important part of the farm shoot and they are not the only kind of field boundary that can be managed for game. Fences, walls, ditches and woodland hedges can all be utilised to encourage game and wildlife – exactly how is simply explained in a booklet* from BASC which also details some of the management grants available.
