There are remnants of ancient hedgerows in the most unexpected places, not necessarily always in the countryside. My lunchtime walk takes me along a cycle path that crosses a small river. The hedgerows contains elderflower (about to blossom), hawthorn, crab-apples, wild-roses, nettles, cow parsley, wild flowers, a variety of butterflies and many different birds. This little tucked walk was the inspiration for my Hidden Swindon blog and each foray brings a new discovery. The empty nest that I spotted in the bare branches of a hawthorn hedge back in January had a pigeon nesting in it a couple of weeks ago - I don't know if there are any fledgling pigeons as someone once said that you never actually see baby pigeons.
