It is an offence under Section 1 of the Wildlife & Countryside Act of 1981 to intentionally take, damage or destroy the nest of any wild bird while it is in use or being built.
The RSPB recommend that cutting hedges and trees is avoided between March and August as this is the main breeding season for nesting birds, but as we all know, warmer weather in general means that some birds are starting to nest earlier in the year.
Why are we reminding you of this? Because there is now little time left this winter to schedule in major hedge work to be certain of complying with the Act.
