My EcoNorth ecologist came a carried out a walk through survey as part of my planning application. There were no revelations or surprises, so hopefully my planning application will be painless. I still need some drawings done for the hide elevations before I can submit the application. I hope it doesn’t take too long otherwise we’ ll hit the bird breeding season and then I will have to wait until next autumn to do the ponds! Hey ho and Merry Christmas.
