An environmentally-ignorant council.

June 01, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

This morning, the council (that's Bracknell Forest Council by the way) mowed and strimmed their way around the business park (or industrial estate - call it what you will) and completely destroyed the bee orchids that we discovered only a couple of days ago.

I found one of the knuckle draggers - complete with strimmer in hand.

To his credit, he at least apologised - but I'm pretty sure he wouldn't recognise a bee orchid if I rammed one up his jacksie.

Such a dreadful shame.

 

NB.

EDIT @ 19:30hrs. 

Walked my two boys around the town this afternoon and we found ONE surviving (new) bee orchid which had been missed by both strimmer and mower a hundred yards or so from the destroyed orchids. (Photo below).

A spot of luck and better than nothing I guess.

TBR.
