As I look out of the newly created, man-made, sterile landscape at the front of the house I notice four social distancing Greylag Geese. The pandemic pause in construction has allowed nature to take the lead and given us time to notice. Transforming farmland into housing estates may feel wrong but if we can allow nature to do what it does best and fill in some gaps on its own rather than expecting it to populate contrived plots designated by developers, life can be much improved and we may learn a thing or two. In the last few weeks we have all noticed the bright blue skies, the sound of birdsong and the trees putting on their mantle of green as we take our daily walk. Lets build on this now and give nature space to breathe so that we all can.
