Maximising the Nature Value of Hedges at Old Leckie

In this video, Fergus Younger of Old Leckie Farm and Sandra Stewart of Farming and Conservation discuss the multitude of benefits hedge planting has brought to Old Leckie. They also talk about how the establishment and management have been altered to optimise its nature value as a habitat and food source for wildlife and to create wildlife corridors to link up habitats on-farm.
