Hedge cutting

RSPB  /www.rspb.org.uk/advice/gardening/planting/hedges/the_law.aspx

We recommend that cutting hedges and trees is avoided between March and August as this is the main breeding season for nesting birds.

wonder if the mild weather might start them earlier this year as there all getting frisky round erein Norfolk, yesterday there were 6 sparrows and blackbirds staking claim to a tree we were just going to  removing to plant a new apple,,back to the drawing board for that one then
