I promised that I would give you updates regarding progress of our higher tier countryside stewardship scheme which started a few weeks ago. It runs until December 2022 and we are receiving payment for undertaking works for conservation on the farm through Pillar 2 of the Common Agricultural Policy. The scheme consists of a range of different options from hedgerow management to maintaining habitat for breeding waders, salt marsh management to planting winter bird feed. Earlier today I was removing willow from an area that is focused on maintaining suitable habitat for sea hog’s fennel. I apologise for the sound in the clip – it was very windy out there today!
