On day 11, I wrote a blog post about a new road which is proposed in the countryside near Hedge End - http://hedgeendblogger.blogspot.co.uk/2016/06/24-million-botley-bypass-consultation.html.
Plans include the widening of Woodhouse Lane which passes a site of interest for nature conservation known as Bottom Copse.
The mature trees to the right of the road in this picture are part of the copse. As yet there is no commitment from the council that the widened road will not encroach on Bottom Copse. There is a stream through the copse. When we walked past the copse today there was a moorhen in the stream. The future for moorhens in Hedge End is a little bleak today.
