Kudos to the Fendland Farmers! Wouldn't it be nice if the idea caught on and landscape-scale projects linking the work of wildlife-friendly farmers started popping up all over the world?

Kudos to this group of farmers; more farmers around the UK are waking up to the benefits of biodiversity on farmland aided by grants from DEFRA. It's all good! Thanks Cal!
