A corridor across the fields.

I love this view from the road looking across our neighbour’s wall to the in-by fields below the farmhouse and the Treshnish Cottages, with the dramatic headland beyond. The shadows from the low winter sun show the contours of the fields. It is across here that Farmer is creating the ‘wildlife corridor’. We began about 8 years ago by fencing off the fence that divides the hill from the fields. This keeps 90% of the red deer out! Slowly, slowly we are fencing off small parcels to allow natural regeneration to take place, and in some places planting saplings to speed up the process.
