wildlife gardens and builders
I have spent the last almost 20 years trying to garden organically to encourage wild life into my garden. We had rare toads, bats that lived in the rectory roof next door not to mention lesser spotted wood peckers and many other creatures besides.
A builder came along called Antler Homes first they knocked down the rectory so all the bats lost their homes. We are lucky if we see one or two now. They said they were putting up special roosts for the bats I asked them how they knew the bats wouldf use them. They said they didn’t. Then they flloded the land for weeks on end this caused large trees to come down even though they denied doing this. (I have pictures). Then they decided to spray weedkiller all along my fence which I believe killed off loads of plants,shrubs, trees not to mention out toads. They refused to say what weedkiller they used even thought they addmitted using weedkiller.
My garden is runied as far as the wildlife is concerned I am not sure how to put things right even though I keep trying.
It seems criminal that thye can go around the country doing this and yet get away with it because they have planning permission.
Is it not time that there was more done to prtect animal habitats from builders?
